Another shelter-in-place emergency alert has been issued for a Houston-area city after another refinery lost electricity.

Texas City Homeland Security coordinator Bruce Clawson says the second Level 3 emergency advisory took effect around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday after a Valero refinery also lost power. Clawson told The Associated Press that Level 3 means residents should stay indoors.

Texas City's BP refinery, where a 2005 explosion killed 15 workers, and a Dow Chemical plant lost power around 11 p.m. Monday. Clawson says the initial shelter-in-place order was ordered after those two outages, but was lifted around 3 a.m. Tuesday.

The source of the power outages is sought. No injuries have been reported.
