After the explosion the orange cloud traveled over us. I experienced Nausea, headaches, severe nasal congestions, and dizziness .
The first check received totaled about $148.00, dollars. Yet persons in Mississippi collected $2,300.00, dollars.
I can't understand how the courts or lawyers decide who receives the fair amount of compensation.
This is not fair compensation.

Everyone who took this money will pay threefold. I am so tired of dead beat people wanting a free hand out. That is what is wrong with our society. The few that suffered should be compensated. The rest .... you will answer one day. Enjoy your "free" money cause with the majority of you , it will be gone in very short order.

Im also wondering about this. Still no answers. My father passed away 10 yrs ago and only recieved a Very small check. I am his heir and also have 5 siblings that this will go to. I thought i read that more funds would be released in September 2016.
We have yet to recieve any answers. And of course it's a Very small amount due to some funds going to lost claims. I wasn't notified of any of this till last yr.
