Seriously? Boston and Waco? I hope this was an accident or we are witnessing S starting to HTF! My thoughts go out to those who lost their lives and loved ones.

Reports according to scanner....

"2 children trapped on 2nd floor of building, fear it will collapse in minutes..."


This is absolutely terrible, what a horrible week.

EDIT TO ADD - 9 Medical Evac Helicopters in route to high school football field.

Can fertilizer be used in making bombs? Because it will explain why this huge explosion took place. Someone please answer!

Yes, actually fertilizer is used in quite a few homemade bombs, to a degree that you will actually attract unwanted attention if you buy enough fertilizer without any obvious need for it. (farmer, etc) It is certainly possible that this is a tragic accident, rather than another deliberate explosion, but it's impossible to know at this point. I just hope nobody was killed, regardless of cause...

If it is then there may have been a bomb and they had prior warning.

That does look quite big.

How often do explosions happen at fertilizer factories?


Not sure but a few years ago a major sugar refinery exploded in my city.. From my understanding both fertilizer and sugar dust are highly explosive.

Listening to the scanner there seems to be confusion from surrounding counties responding for assistance, and not being familiar with the areas, which is understandable, but don't they have GPS installed in emergency vehicles these days? Sounds like complete chaos in the area.

Did I hear that right, 9 inbound helivac units?

Not sure about Waco but some small towns don't have GPS services
