A fertilizer plant near Waco did anyway.

From the article:
Updated (11:42 p.m.): Several homes are on fire, and residents of a nearby retirement home are trapped inside after an explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas, a small town near Waco. The cause of the explosion and extent of the damage is unclear, but the local Department of Public Safety says that a number of of people are severely injured. The explosion could be felt as far away as Dallas, which is nearly 100 miles away

So it's fireworks then?

There is a video of the explosion on YouTube now.



While I definitely feel sorry for the kid, I can't help but be **** off at the asshat father using portrait mode to film it. Smiley: mad

Edit: Video with slow-mo shot for that Michael Bay feel. Smiley: oyvey

This story would be more fun if a truck full of diesel and pressure cookers had crashed into it instead of the far more likely circumstance that it was an industrial accident because Texas refuses to regulate anything effectively.

I'm surprised they haven't turned the Mexican border into a new 38th parallel.

Gov Perry is running ads here saying businesses should move to Texas for its "business friendly" environment. He should work this into the ads.

Explosions aside, his movies are often characterized as fertilizer.

If only they had less strict gun laws in Texas, people could have protected their property.

Regulations are bad for FREEDOM.

She probably couldn't hear herself and he couldn't hear her either. I'd be surprised if they didn't get lasting damage from that blast.

Sounds like the perfect relationship.

From that distance I seriously doubt there will be any real lasting damage. Maybe a little ringing in their ears.

She sounded more like a little girl than a girlfriend to me. Also, someone posted a map of where they were and they were about 1.5x as far away as the apartment buildings that basically got blown to pieces.

NPR had an interview with the two. It was a little girl. Chloe. 12 years old, asked her dad to stop so they could take pictures of the fire.

Blast was strong enough to rock the vehicle, and apparently the man was knocked over into his daughter. There were people out in the field recording and picture taking, when the father got out of the vehicle after the explosion everyone had already fled.

West Fertilizer Co. Told the EPA That Last Night's Explosion Could Never Happen
Quote:
The Dallas Morning News got its hands on the West Fertilizer Co.'s report, filed with the EPA and local public safety officials assessing the risk of fire or explosion at the plant, which had an estimated 54,000 pounds anhydrous ammonia on site.
...
The report, reviewed Wednesday night by The Dallas Morning News, stated 'no' under fire or explosive risks. The worst possible scenario, the report said, would be a 10-minute release of ammonia gas that would kill or injure no one.


Edit: I wanna know how they got away with even stating that the ammonia leak would cause no injuries. I mean, I guess if everyone was wearing full-face respirators 100% of the time, a controlled(?) ammonia leak wouldn't cause injury. But how is that "the worst possible scenario"?

She said "dad" at one point in the video, too.
