    What in the hell is going on? I surely hope this is unrelated. Nonetheless, that explosion was enormous. I hope people made it out, and that if people did die, that they died quickly and painlessly. I shudder to think of surviving an explosion/fire like that.

    I have a friend out there in Waco. Anybody know how close to the town this is?

    around 20 miles from Waco maybe a little less. They felt it in Waco I'm sure. Earlier I heard that people in South Dallas felt it. That's approximately 65 miles from West.

    Live Updates: West Texas Fertilizer Plant Explosion Injures More Than 100 - ABC News

    12:53 a.m. ET: Blood drives are planned for Thursday in Texas. Linda Goelzer of Carter Blood Care, the primary blood support service supporting more 58 counties, largest blood provider in Texas told ABC News the people in the community of West are “heart of gold people, like a Norman Rockwell painting.”
    “The whole town is being evacuated. We had our blood supply pretty well stocked in Waco as of today but now we are sending more than 300 units of blood from Dallas Fort Worth down to Waco, that’s where patients are going. Many are being care-flighted to Parkland Hospital in Dallas for treatment at their burn center,” Goelzer said.
    “Tonight our message to our donors is don’t everybody come at once, we will have patients for who knows how long who will be needing blood. Especially O-negative are needed, universal donor, will likely be expended tonight. What we tell people is that the blood helping people tonight is what’s already on the shelves. What we’ll need most is for consistency. We have blood drives everyday and we will have them tomorrow, we just don’t want people flooding in, in droves, like they did after 9/11. We’re asking our regular donors to keep coming throughout the week because we expect there will be many survivors.”

    I was relieved when there were no headlines saying there were deaths, and then I clicked on links reporting that there were confirmed deaths (with no numbers), and then the relief went away completely and then...well.....still....Jesus Christ.
