Could Mystery Crop Damage in Millington, TN Be Caused by Lucite International Chemical Leak on May 25, 2010?

Back on May 25, 2010, there was a chemical leak at the Lucite International plant. I do not know if there is a connection between the leak and the reported crop damage, but the affliction affects all plants and kills baby birds, so the cause is likely to be a chemical as opposed to a disease.

Sulfur trioxide vapors were leaked at the plant. Sulfur trioxide is toxic, and I wonder what effect it has on plants and crops.
