A fertilizer plant exploded tonight and the reports I'm seeing is saying as many as 10 buildings are on fire.
People are saying they thought it was an earthquake because they felt it from 40 miles away.
Many surrounding areas are sending their first responders to help with the fires and injured but there hasn't been any confirmations on fatalities or number of injured.

Thoughts and prayers for the people of West!

If anyone has any updates please post them.

Sorry. I don't know how to make it clicky.


Update:
The director of West EMS is confirming that he believes 60-70 dead and hundreds injured- KWTX News 10.

Update 2:
Just confirmed that 2 children were transported to McLanes children's hospital in Temple.




FEEL FREE TO POST YOUR UPDATES ON HERE WHEN YOU HAVE THEM.
I'm sure more information will come out in the morning and we'd all like to know what is happening.

My sis is a firefighter and she posted it up on facebook. My thoughts are with everyone over there and I hope they get the fire controlled and everyone evacuated!

It's a bad deal. I sure hope they get the nursing home residents out of there safely.
