Two people were killed and another was injured after an early morning explosion at Watson Grinding and Manufacturing in Houston. The explosion involved a 2,000-gallon tank of propylene, an extremely flammable gas, which has since been secured by a HazMat team.
Residents in the neighborhood said the force of the explosion knocked them out of their beds this morning just before 4:20 a.m. Some homes were knocked off of their foundations. Debris has been found as far as a 1/4 mile from the blast site near the corner of Gessner and Clay Roads.
