At least one large boom was heard and felt throughout the area, The Houston Chronicle reported. Schools in the area were put on lockdown following the blast.
Authorities have closed the road leading to Seabrook explosion site from both directions. Fire fighters immediately swung into action after the blast and brought the fire into control. There has been no report of any serious injuries or casualties.

Pasadena authorities said that warning has been issued to the local residents as explosion lead to the release of Toluene, a substance which could lead to nausea and tiredness.

The Houston Chronicle is reporting that firefighters appear to have put the resulting fire caused by the plant explosion out and that two people have been taken to Hospital complaining of discomfort.
Nothing else happened. People from Texas will have to deal with chemical intoxication now.
