Jesus. I watched the YouTube video once...
Senior citizens home collapsed due to the explosion. 6 block radius of damaged homes needing home-by-home searches. The numbers aren't going to be good when they come out overt the next few days.

US Geological Survey says fertilizer plant explosion in West, TX registered as a 2.1 magnitude earthquake.

The Guardian in england have just pulled up a map of the area.... the one saving grace in all of this is that the middle school is right next to the chemical plant....

There are three to five firefighters missing.
Some homes near the centre of the blat have been "levelled".
There is no indication yet of criminal involvement in the blast.

clearly a cover up as this plant was the source of the boston marathon bombs. I hope they have tin foil hats in my size.
This is what I was thinking .... an absolute disaster waiting to happen
Actually, the plant was built before the houses and school were built. Which begs the question, why build houses and a school near the plant, not the other way around.

So you blame the school board and homebuilders?
What I don't understand is why there were no evacuations before the explosion? The fire departments in the area should have known what was contained in that facility. An out of control blaze like that is a "OMFG GTFO!!!" type of call.
Maybe they did their best at it? This is a pretty small town, it has 3 ambulances.
Back Ground Checks on those buying fertilizer and making it in future? First Oklahoma City, now Waco, this Assault Fertilizer is killing way to many innocent people to go unchecked. Where is Feinstein and Barry???
Take your political BS to Wells.
Oh no...you're gonna get banned!
