Supply Chain Issues from Katrina

Joel Leonard ( emailed the following to Paul Studebaker, editor of Plant Services, today: "Just got off of the phone with Bright Plastics- Discovered 95% of all polyethylene and styrene production off line for now. That will have enormous supply chain issues on cost and availability for the plastic injection molding industry." Like I said earlier...we will be having trickle-down supply chain problems for months. What do you think the results will be? My guess is that if we escape a depression, it will be a minor miracle.
