"Texas Explosion"
Fri 19-Apr-13 02:08 AM by esantos

McAllen, US
          

I went to Baylor University for a time which is just a few miles south of West, Texas where a fertilizer plant had an enormous explosion killing several, including volunteer firefighters fighting the blaze that eventually ignited the fertilizer causing the blast. Hundreds more were injured and some are still unaccounted for. The blast was felt as far away as Amarillo over 400 miles west registering a 2.5 magnitude earthquake. Much of the town of West has been leveled. My thoughts and prayers go out to my fellow Texans.

It's hard to imagine a blast so strong it registered on the Richter scale, but also created a small mushroom cloud.

Thanks for the additional details on this Ernesto,

An enormous blast causing lots of human suffering and damage it seems.

My thoughts are with our fellow members in this area of Texas.

A terrible tragedy.
And the livelihood of the whole town is threatened.
A heart breaking reminder that life is today, now.
