Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt is monitoring the aftermath of the chemical explosion in Kansas City and has offered any needed state assistance to local officials, spokeswoman Jessica Robinson said this afternoon.
The Department of Natural Resources is closely monitoring the situation due to the chemicals involved, she said. Blunt has offered to provide highway troopers to assist with traffic control and other operations, but thus far a request has not been made for their aid, she said.
