Explosion in Texas!!! Update:video!

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.


EDIT:

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.

Correct I am from OK so i know how explosive fetilizer is and if he lives in a town where one is he should know too...either way sad story... bad parenting decision...if people dont know how bombs are made by now they should do some research about Timothy McVeigh.


Quoting jjchick75:

I never thought of people not knowing how dangerous this stuff is after what happened in OKC at the Murry building. Before that I knew it was dangerous but I didn't realize it was that explosive. But my guess is living in a town with a large fertilizer plant he probably knew. Not to mention they were already trying to evacuate people because they were afraid it would explode. As I said he might not have thought it would be that big but in my opinion it was not a wise decision to take a child that close to it. We all do things with our kids that are not wise at one point or another and I'm just saying this is one of those in my opinion.

It's removed. From what I have seen they are probably trying to cover stuff up.

I tried to just go with it being an accident, but from two videos I have seen I see something fly in from the left and then the massive explosion. It does not look like it was the plant exploding. I'm no expert, obviously, but I saw it in more than one video.

Too bad that the vid has disappeared. Maybe it is available elsewhere?

As for it being an accident, it sure is a great coincidence that it occurred so near the Waco anniversary and near Waco at that. (They certainly never told the truth about what really went down.)

Now if we find out that a drill was being conducted at the same time (like 9-11, London bombings, Boston marathon, etc) then it will really stink.
