    I just heard that people in South Dallas felt the explosion. That's around 65 miles from West. People in Hillsboro thought the explosion was in their town. Hillsboro is 18 miles from West.

    When I was little, a fertilizer plant near me had a rail car of the stuff go off. It was compared to a nuke blast complete with mushroom cloud by those close to the blast area. It blew out almost every window for a good radius around it. Fortunately nobody was killed because it went off in the middle of the night when the plant was closed and the plant sat in this small valley forcing the blast upward.

    “West EMS Director Dr. George Smith says as many as 60 or 70 people died and hundreds were injured Wednesday night in a fertilizer plant explosion in West,” KWTX reports.

    ABC News’ Gio Benitez reports that at least 200 people have been injured, 40 critically, in the explosion. Further, roughly 75-100 houses and businesses have reportedly been completely destroyed.

    Hillcrest Hospital has called in 250 to 300 additional staff to help. Holy crap.

    Did you watch that video? There's no way no one died.
