MAJOR EXPLOSION in fertilizer plant in West, TX (18 miles North of Waco). Heavy fire & many injuries reported. DEVELOPING
6:15 PM - 17 Apr 2013
There is going to be a horrific # of injuries/deaths if the very early reports are true. Prayers go out to them.... A fertilizer plant has got to be one of the three worst places to have an explosion(not that there is a "good" place to have one). Of course not all fertilizers are explosive, but still.
some more pictures
that looks really reall bad
It looks pretty bad from the linked video.
So what the fuck happens tomorrow? Plague?
Well the red wedding is Saturday, so probably
Look, I'm not saying that the week leading up to your wedding is becoming like the worst week ever or anything, nor am I saying that's a sign or anything. Or anything.
Nah I agree, I'm attention whoring when our nation is suffering, and I agree it isn't cute anymore. I just do what I can in my day to day and go home and do my secret handshake to my mother Mary and hope (pray) for the best
No deaths confirmed, but you have to believe that it's pretty serious based on the pictures/video. Probably gonna hear about dozens (or more) who didn't make it by tomorrow. So sad :(
Prayers go out to those who have lost loved ones in these type of events.

I've got friends in College Station about 100 miles away towards the SE who heard and felt it. They thought it was a jet flying really low before the news broke.
"It's just so hard," Greivis said. "It's my heart, my love. Maryland made me who I am."
My god...scared the living crap out of me. hope the kid is okay.
When was the last time two huge seperate "events" like this coincided in such a short period?
From Twitter: "CNN looks to be only cable news station going with coverage... so no credible new stations covering story"
You know, it always scared the shit out of me that there was a nuclear reactor on UMD's campus.
To be completely fair, who saw that coming? It looked to be half a mile away. That's insane.
It's a huge Fertilizer plant that is set on fire. What did he expect to happen?
