In 1986, six people were hurt and two homes destroyed near Lancaster.

In 2002, an explosion caused two million dollars in damage in Montgomery County.

In 2003, another Texas Eastern pipeline explosion happened in Bath County.

In 2004, nine people were hurt and five homes destroyed in Pike County.

In 2006, there was an explosion in Clark County, luckily, no one was injured.

In 2012, no one was hurt when a major explosion and fire lit up the sky in Estill County.

In 2014, two people were injured and two homes destroyed in Adair County.
