By Associated Press
PLYMOUTH, Wash. (AP) -- Williams Northwest Pipeline says crews are still cleaning up after the March 31 explosion and fire that damaged a liquefied natural gas storage facility at Plymouth, which is across the Columbia River from Umatilla, Oregon.
The company's Michele Swaner told KONA crews are in the final stages of retrieving liquefied gas from a damaged storage tank.
She says they hope to have the facility operating again by winter, when the demand for natural gas peaks.
