Two people remain missing, and six were injured after an explosion at the Port of Corpus Christi on Friday morning, reports Kris 6 News.
A port spokesperson said a dredge called the Waymon L. Boyd hit an underwater natural gas pipeline, causing the massive explosion that sent plumes of black smoke into the air at about 8 a.m.
Firefighters said the fire ignited the dredge and spread from the pipeline to a nearby grain elevator.
Port of Corpus Christi Chief Executive Officer Sean Strawbridge said in a news conference Friday that the dredge was working for a private port client.
