That's pretty crazy. The amount of security measures in energy plants are usually really high, multiple levels deep, to prevent such incidents. Outlier events happen eventually, crazy it was this bad though

Freaking hell, that part of Texas has a lot of chemical plants of all sorts. Usually pretty safe, but statistics will make a liar of everyone over time...
