ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — The City of Round Rock reports crews have found four leaks to date that account for about 2 million gallons of extra water each day. That extra water means the city is dumping more water into the creek than it’s permitted to, meaning it may not be properly treated. Last month KXAN saw untreated sewage in the water.
A large fire has broken out late Sunday in the Caspian Sea, where Azerbaijan has vast offshore oil and gas fields.
Footage circulating on social media showed the huge blaze visible from the coast, and earlier media reports suggested there had been an explosion on an offshore platform.
However, Azerbaijan's Ministry of Emergency Situations denied these reports and said there had been no accident.
