I couldn't agree with you more. It seems like some folks just go out of their way to be hateful, spiteful, evil, unempathetic, etc. when things like this happen. I will never understand it.

This is a scary video to watch. I wouldn't be surprised something similar happened tonight in Texas. Accidents do happen. However, that can be deadly.

In another post, he says, "I know what caused it".

SMH.

Yeah, some people aren't that stupid. Some are. But regardless...

More pipe bombs found over the last two days. Apparently, they are all the rage. Kind of troubling.

Trying to get a hold of my brother who lives up there. No dice.


Jam try not to worry, they said a cellphone tower was blown over with the explosion. I live about 20 miles away from West, and heard it on my local news.

Fox News is now reporting many people are flooding hospitals with chemical inhalation. This could be far worse than the explosion itself.Prayers go out to the people of that community.

That's scary. I wouldn't be surprised to know hundreds have passed away because of this terrible accident. Not being a religious man. All I can do is pray.

Local stadiums are being used as triage centers. Overhead helo footage confirms it.

The initial "attack" if this was a terrorist event is small bomb/s creating the huge fire as seen before the explosion. Ammonium nitrate needs a "starter". The intense heat from the initial fire than creates the Explosion.

What exactly are you circling in the last photo? What is you "theory"? I see three shots of the fire before the horrific explosion.

Ammonium Nitrate / Fuel Oil

Very easy to make.

Same explosives used by Timothy McVeigh in Oklahoma. McVeigh also was a whitness at Waco, because he was interested what happened and drove there, before he set up the bomb.

Waco:

"On February 28, 1993, there was a shootout in which six Branch Davidians and four agents of the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) died. After 50 days, on April 19, 1993, a standoff between FBI agents and Branch Davidians ended in a fire that destroyed their compound located in Mt. Carmel, near Waco. Seventy-four people, including leader David Koresh, died in the blaze. This event became known as the Waco siege."

Wikipedia

Can't be a coincidence.

I have not seen this posted yet.

Here is a link to the McLennan County Texas EMS if anybody is interested in trying to scrape some more data for us.

Heres hoping this was a tragic accident.

My guess on why it blew from the left is those metal tanks (upper two in pic) contained the main explosive element and with the wind blowing the flames towards those tanks, it ignited.

20th Anniversary of the siege was my first thought also.

Wow this is real bad, I hope the casualties will be as little as possible but it doesn't look good.

Could this be the North Korean Attack on Austin Texas we have all been told about in the last couple of weeks? Waco is very close to Austin and the fumes from this fertilizer bomb can flow at an unpredictable path.

Now reporting people still trapped in homes but can't be reached due to toxic chemicals....
Weather not looking good tomorrow for the entire area. High winds and storms are going to make rescue and evacuations more broad and difficult.

Thursday forecast for Waco.

Overcast with thunderstorms and rain showers in the morning, then mostly cloudy. High of 72F. Breezy. Winds from the NW at 20 to 25 mph with gusts to 30 mph. Chance of rain 80% with rainfall amounts near 0.7 in. possible

It always has to get worse it seems.
One would have to consider the long term affects of breathing this stuff in as well. After the wounded are cared for and any that passed are buried who knows how many will have residual affects of breathing this stuff in and at that point most of America will have moved on to the next tragedy. Too sad for words at this point. Thoughts and prayers go out to all involved.
