There were no seismic events reported by the geophysical web sites that track such things. It was not an industrial event. There were reports from the cities of Angleton, TX, Freeport, TX. and Lake Jackson, TX. Included here is a post from the local newspapers' Facebook account.

The Facts 15 mins· We have checked with multiple law enforcement agencies, as well as the plants, to see if they could provide any information on the reported explosions/house-shakings in Brazosport and Angleton. They are as curious about them as the rest of us.
