The Recent Texas Explosions – Why You Should Be Concerned

News reports have been released in the past few weeks that have detailed two separate but eerily similar explosions that have occurred in Texas. One happened in Dallas, and the other near Houston. What is somewhat daunting is that there are way too many similarities between the two incidents, so much so that authorities are now beginning to investigate whether or not there is a link between them. Below we’ll lay out a few points as to why this should be so troubling to the general public.

Similarities Leave Hints of Serious Problem

Any time more than one crime is committed where the circumstances are almost identical, it indicates that either someone is out there repeatedly doing these things or there are a series of “copy cats” who want to “accomplish” the same thing that happened as a result of the original act. When talking about similarities in the murder context, many people will think of the infamous Son of Sam killings in New York City in the late 1970’s. When people start thinking about similarly-occurring chemical explosions, their thoughts lead to something far worse.

Extreme Danger – Short and Long Term

Very few incidents are more dangerous than explosions at chemical plants, and this is the case for many reasons. First, depending on the type of chemicals present in the plant, the potential for extremely powerful and destructive explosions is always a concern. Secondly, the result of these explosions, again depending on the chemicals present, could create a “storm cloud” that either damages or completely destroys everything in its wake.

Not to mention, the often-overlooked long term damage could wind up being the most serious consequence of these explosions. When people ingest chemical compounds, it’s often impossible to predict what will happen months or even years down the road. It took many years to discover the damage that inhaling cigarette smoke and asbestos can cause, and chemical clouds are no different.


Generally speaking, the recent events in Texas regarding these two chemical plant explosions are quite disturbing for many reasons. We can only hope that investigators quickly discover what they need to and snuff out this potential problem in short order. In the meantime, if you have been injured in an explosion, you should contact the explosion lawyers at Williams Hart immediately to schedule a free initial consultation and to find out what legal options you have available to you.
