I woke up and heard this, it's terrible!
I didn't hear about this but as soon as I saw the word "Fertilizer Plant" I knew it had something to do with explosion; I was actually shocked that it was only burning / on fire at the beginning (chemistry regarding the NH4NO3 inside of fertilizer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ammonium_nitrate).
I am deeply hurt to hear that there are fatalities regarding this incident.
This week is just brutal.
"Debby Marak told the AP that when she finished teaching her religion class Wednesday night, she noticed a lot of smoke in the area across town near the plant. She said she drove over to see what was happening, and that when she got there, two boys came running toward her screaming that the authorities had ordered everyone out because the plant was going to explode.
She said she had driven only about a block when it did."
"In 2001, an explosion at a chemical and fertilizer plant killed 31 people and injured more than 2,000 in Toulouse, France. The blast occurred in a hangar containing 300 tons of ammonium nitrate, which can be used for both fertilizer and explosives. The explosion came 10 days after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the U.S., and raised fears at the time it was linked. A 2006 report blamed the blast on negligence."
Its good that someone read the MSDS, they probably saved a lot of lives.
That poor girl :s I hope she didn't lose her hearing.
What's the next state? I really am getting scared now.
It was an accident and completely separate from the Boston bombing...
A fire inside the plant was the cause of the blast, reported at about 8pm.
Ok who was the genius that decided to build a plant down town...
(Tour Guide) "Ok, we have the schools here and here, we have te daycare over there, we have mrs. shultz house right there, oh and she is next to the retirement home, and oh yes the chemical plant is right their...."
Like seriously, who ever decided that was a great place for it was a fuc%ing genus...
No she didnt, they are both ok.
This is an interview with them:
PS: This is a re-upload I can't find the original.
Having any factory that can cause a major explosion near a school is moronic.
No zoning regulations fail.
Welcome to Texas. . .
Heard on the news that this place had a violation and hadn't been inspected for 20+ years.
I have some picture that I found on the internet, they are very shocking but interesting and shows how destructive was this explosion ! And a video.
