Prayers out to the people there and the first responders. Reports of nitrate being the main cause.

Watching some of this, amazing how much damage was done.

They said it registered a 2.1 on the Richter scale.

Was called in at 12:05 this morning to provide portable radio batteries for Waco PD. I live 50 miles from West. Been up off and on all morning. Monitoring the radio scanner constantly. Lots of radio activity, Glad Waco's radio system (which I maintain) reaches West.

I hope that kid's hearing returns.  That was a nasty bang.  Faster than you can react to it, it's already on you.

The folks in the truck must have thought their day had come!  Sad thing is, it did for many.  Glad the little girl is ok, but mentally, she'll always carry that with her.....her dad as well!
