HOUSTON – A town hall meeting was called for residents and victims of a massive explosion at a northwest Houston manufacturing facility Friday.

The meetings was called by the Kwok Daniel law firm to help residents affected by the blast get valuable information on how to seek reimbursement for damages to their homes.

"Who do we contact? Where do we even start?” said homeowner Mayra Remigio.

Attorney Rob Kwok said his firm is currently representing 115 residents that are now suing Watson Grinding and Manufacturing.

Kim Laake is one of those Plaintiffs, she said the damage to her home was extensive.

KPRC 2 reached out to Watson Grinding and Manufacturing to find out if the company was doing anything for the residents but were referred back to a statement put out on Friday:
