Massive Fertilizer Plant Explosion Shakes Texas, Town Evacuated, Toxic Fumes, Up To 70 Dead - Live Stream

Tyler Durden's picture




 

In the aftermath of the Boston horrors, a massive explosion has occurred at a fertlizer plant in the town of West, Texas (near Waco). This week is the 20th anniversary of the deadly seige in Waco. There are at least 10 other buildings are on fire, including the town middle school, and a large swath of the town was “leveled” in the explosion. The explosion occurred around 7:50pm local time. A fireball of nearly 100 feet high has been reported along with a massive power outage. The images and scale of this explosion are incredible and reports are coming in people still trapped. The explosion could be heard from 100 miles away in Dallas. The explosion followed the outbreak of a fire at the plant - and occurred as firefighters were working on the blaze.

 

UPDATE: Entire town (within a mile radius) to be evacuated - toxic fumes may be spreading

UPDATE: Hospital told to anticipate 100 people with injuries, Hospital CEO tells CNN

UPDATE: Up To 70 Dead, 38 seriously injured included blast injuries, orthopedic injuries, large wounds and a lot of lacerations and cuts.

UPDATE: *AS MANY AS 80 HOMES DESTROYED IN TEXAS FERTILIZER BLAST: CNN

 

CNN Reports from Dr. George Smith, the emergency management system director of the city:

Fire officials fear that the number of casualties could rise as high as 60 to 70 dead,

 

"That's a really rough number, I'm getting that figure from firefighters, we don't know yet," he said.

 

"There are lots of houses that are leveled within a two-block radius," Smith said. "A lot of other homes are damaged as well outside that radius."

 

"It was an apartment complex that was devastated, and the nursing home. The fire was close to a residential area,"

And from the Mayor:

"There's a lot of people who won't be here
tomorrow
"

 

"Blast 'took out' a five-block radius"

Stunning clip of the explosion (at around 25 seconds)

By any chance was Geitner, Shapiro, Thain, Corizine, Mozilo, Lewis, Paulson, Bernank, Fuld, Moynihan etc in the building?

 

Perhaps these are the WHITE MALE TERRORISTS obama is looking for, with the exception of Mozilo who is orange.  I've been informed that Geithner may be trans species, as well.

Odd. In 2001 there were the Twin Towers, Anthrax, and Flight 587.

2013: Boston, Ricin, fertilizer plant in Texas.

Always in 3's. WTF?

Garden supplies (fertilizer), canning supplies (pressure cookers) and shooting supplies (black powder) all on prepper's list of must have items.  The false flags are coming at light speed.  Add to that, PM markets continue to be slammed down and even the real estate and stock market bubbles are showing weakness.  The shit clouds are gathering....

Indeed.  Can't wait to see what "stuff" they "find" with the perp(s) in Boston.  Whatever it is, it will have to be immediately banned and confiscated.

Going after the uber-left Prez and an R-Senator is a dead give-away that this is engineered to require broad "reforms".  I'm getting down to the very last "to dos" on my checklist...

(p.s. for those of you who I've promised Scotch and other fine delicacies in a SHTF situation, your shares are well...)

Down arrow for you for using chemical fertilizer.  Horseshit is the best available, and until this farce collapses, it looks to be in high supply.  Obviously in jest; the DC brand of horseshit plainly can't be employed for anything useful.  But cow shit is almost as good, and is 100 times better for both your food and your land than big ag lazy spread.

Anhydrous Ammonia, whch is what the plant was reportedly manufacturng, and what I see written on plackards on trucks carrying the stuff through built-up areas (no less), was used with Liquid Oxygen to power the X-15....Rocket Fuel.

In rural areas, the opposite usually occurs. A plant is built to produce a product. Then a community builds up around it.

I live in the Big-D and take trips to Austin to go visit my, ugg, mother-in-law. The first thing that comes to mind is the Kolache place right next to the Sonic which you guys have a picture of. God bless those poor souls in the fire/explosion.

Fuck me. You know, I was away for a few hours, and, admittedly, I've had a bit to drink tonight... but has the entire world just decided to go to hell all of the sudden or what? I wish I had a fucking cave to go live in for a few years. Jesus Christ.

Can someone please explain why all this crazy ass shit is happening at the same time? It's a little too much for us drunk bastards to process.

+1 for saying something nice about Jesus. I've never seen that happen on this site before. Now, for something else I've never seen on this site before, someone say something nice about Obama. I'll give you a +1 for that too.

There is nothing wrong with Jesus. It is the emotional retards who allow shyster to use Jesus for their own gain.

There is nothing wrong with Obama. It is the emotional voters who allow shyster lobbysts to use Obama for their own gain.

Yeah, I downed too many as is my want every 3 days, and joined the NRA finally. I know they suck but I had to join something other than the unofficial anti-commies on the internet.

So you're on the "every 3 days" schedule, too? I think that helps keep it from becoming the proverbial "grandpa's cough medicine," if you know what I mean.

I remember driving by a liquor store with my dad one time when I was a kid, and I pointed out that it was the place where Grandma bought her groceries. He laughed his ass off.

Well, for me - i don't go out.  I have a couple of brandys before bed and I sleep like a baby.  No hangover, just relax.  Don't need to over-do it. 

Then there's those rare occasions....

I only vaguely remember how this tradition got started (college), but I only drink gin when I re-built carburetors.  I haven't had any gin in about 20 years.
