Transcript for At least 2 people dead in massive warehouse gas explosion in Texas
We move on to the deadly and massive explosion in Houston. Rocking surrounding neighborhoods. Incredible there. At least two people killed, several injured. Rooftops smashed, windows blown out. Tonight now the warning for families miles away from the Marcus Moore in Houston. Reporter: The powerful explosion caught on a doorbell camera lighting up the sky. The shockwave knocking it to the ground. You can still see smoke and flames billowing out of that building. Reporter: Tonight in Houston at least two people are dead and hundreds of families have no where to go after a massive and deadly explosion at a manufacturing plant. The blast just before 4:30 this morning. This building looks like a bomb has gone off inside it. What did you think? That was crazy. Reporter: The owner telling our station KTRK it was likely caused by leaking propylene, a highly flammable gas that is dangerous to breathe. Explosion in your house? Yeah. Whoosh. Everything fell off the doors. Even the windows broke. It wasike an earthquake. Reporter: The two killed believed to be workers at the plant. Debris scattered for half a mile. More than a 180 homes damaged, many knocked from their foundations. This is the kitchen blinds down, glass shattered everywhere, but look at this. These window frames, they are bent from the force, the sheer force of the explosion. We're just really blessed to be alive and all the sheetrock that came down in our house, it's a miracle that none of it landed on our heads. Reporter: Residents now shoring up their homes. The ATF assisting in the investigation. It is amazing anyone survived this to be quite honest. We are very lucky this happened very early this morning before this street was busy and before all the employees were at that business. Authorities here in Texas are asking residents if they find anything in or around their homes even if it's a mile away, don't touch it if it's building debris or body parts. The red cross set up an emergency shelter for all the families displaced by this terrible blast. Marcus, thank you.
