Texas Fertilizer Plant Explodes; Mass Injuries Explosion Recorded [VIDEO]

A major explosion has happened at a fertilizer plant, leveling much of the town of West, TX. Details and video.

The entire town has been evacuated due to fears that other fertilizer tanks might explode.The plant caught fire between 6:30 and 7 p.m. local time last night and blew up shortly thereafter.

The town of West, TX is located in the north-central area of the state. It is approximately 19 miles north of Waco, the city probably best-known for where cult leader David Koresh led a 50-day standoff against the FBI that ended on April 19, 1993. And in what could be a tragic coincidence, today’s disaster occurred on nearly the same date as a                 similar fertilizer explosion/fire  in Texas City, TX, which took place on April 16, 1947.

West Mayor Tommy Muska, also a member of the local fire department, was about a block away from the plant when the explosion happened. Here’s what he saw. Language warning.
