MUST SEE: Photos and Video of Texas Chemical Plant Explosion are Terrifying and Extraordinary

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Port Neches.

There are few industrial events more fear-inducing than uncontrolled fires and explosions in the hazardous chemical industry, and one town in Texas is being reminded of that reality this week.

In Port Neches, Texas, the unthinkable has occurred.

Some 60,000 Texans have been driven from their homes on Thanksgiving by a series of explosions at a petrochemical plant Wednesday that has created a massive ongoing fire.

A huge subsequent blast at about 2 p.m. Wednesday launched a distillation tower into the air, prompting authorities to order Jefferson County residents within a four-mile radius of the plant — in Port Neches and Groves, and parts of nearby Nederland and Port Arthur — to evacuate.

This second explosion was even caught on camera, with the aforementioned tower launch belying the serious and terrifying nature of the incident.

Other bits of footage from the incident have gone viral as well.

 

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Port Neches.
