There has been an explosion at a fertilizer plant near Waco in the town of West. They are saying up to 70 people dead and hundreds injured. The first deaths reported were those of firefighters and police officers. There was a fire that broke out, which spread and triggered the explosion. Prayers needed for those people. It looks like the majority of the town was leveled or seriously damaged. No reports yet on what started the fire.
Plus..there’s been an explosion up in Oklahoma City at a tank battery. There’s some seriously bad weather going on up there, so there’s a chance this was weather related. Lots of people having their lives turned upside down this week. These people need all the prayers, good karma and the like that they can get.
Six Firefighters, two EMS, and one LEO confirmed.
And this isn’t the first time that fertilizer has blow-up in Texas, Texas City.
Reports of 50,00-100,000 lbs of ammonium nitrate on site. OKC was 4,800 lbs.
And the weather isn’t looking good.
Thanks, Lobo…I have been making some phone calls.
