    Default Watson Grinding Explosion

    For those of us in Houston, especially, the Watson Grinding place had an explosion this AM....it's leveled. One employee missing. I heard 'propylene' was involved but otherwise...not sure why a Grinding place would have anything explosive in it.

    They do surface treating and metallurgy stuff too, so probably a bit of compressed gasses on site.....

    Two dead so far - very sad. Lot of houses and local buildings with damage, someone's insurance is going to take a beating...
