South Texas Pipeline Explosion felt over 60 miles away!!!

REFUGIO, Texas — A natural gas pipeline explosion and fire in Refugio shook homes up to 60 miles away early Wednesday morning.

State Troopers say so far there are no reports of injuries or serious damage. The fire is now under control.

It was about midnight when troopers received the first reports of a large explosion between Corpus Christi and Victoria, about 160 miles southwest of the Houston area.

Troopers say the explosion occurred along a natural gas pipeline about a quarter-mile off 427 FM Rd 774.

No evacuations were called for as the company came out and shut off the flow of gas. It’s not yet confirmed which company owns the pipeline, however.
