    Maybe a gas explosion? The explosion was near beltway 8 and clay road.

    If Katy is not safe, no place is safe.

    Wow, wild! Did not notice anything out in Cypress. We have air purifiers in the house and they didn't pick up on anything weird.

    I live off of Gessner and Longpoint. Never heard it, I don't think (unless I woke up and don't remember). But people on the neighborhood chats say that they've heard it and had their homes shake. I didn't notice anything with my home on the way out.

    Apparently no shelter in place at this point, and schools are still open, except for a couple really close by there.
