    I saw on another forum that there was a large explosion in NW Houston this morning. Residents reporting windows blown out of houses. Here's hoping all are safe.

    Slept right through it down here by hobby airport. Apparently one worker is unaccounted for. If he was in or next to the building, they've probably found all of him that they ever will.

    Slept through @5 miles away but I can't hear I-10 from just a few hundred feet in this hotel. Hopefully the missing worker was late, ran to the store etc.

    Watson, not Rothman.

    In an industry meeting now and we know a related business just a few doors from ground zero, trying to find out if they're ok. Others here are saying they're likely in Port Arthur cleaning up after that recent explosion.

    News is saying Watson Grinding & Manufacturing, linked this website: Watson Grinding

    Source was a propylene tank that blew up, no indication in the article as to the cause. I'm like 14 miles away as the crow flies, I heard nothing.
