Early Friday (1-24-2019) morning, an explosion at the Watson Grinding and Manufacturing plant killed two people and damaged - some severely - over 200 area homes. Add to the damage - over a million dollars worth of Corvettes. Houston Corvette Service is across the street from the plant and two of the buildings were flattened. The business restores old Corvettes. The owner, Gordon Andrus, says he's grateful in this horrible situation that none of his employees were at the location at the time of the blast and no one was hurt.
