WACO (April 17, 2013)--West EMS Director Dr. George Smith says as many as 60 or 70 people died and at least 100 were injured Wednesday night in a fertilizer plant explosion in West.
A rescuer earlier said he knew of five deaths.
West Mayor Tommy Muska said at a news conference however, that he doesn't yet know how many people were hurt or killed in the blast explosion.
He said there was a fire at the West Fertilizer plant before the explosion.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Dang this is horrible.
Fertilizer ban next?
So sorry this took place. What a sad occurrence.
They sure haven’t been saying anything like that on the news this evening. It may be so horrific that they are afraid to say much of anything until they have more facts about both casualties and causes. Hope this story is wrong.
What an absolutely HORRIBLE week..first Boston..now this..unbelievable horror..just cant believe it
This is horrible.
Prayers for the families.
sad, but it makes the 3 murdered at Boston seem small.....
I wonder if bamey the boy will attend an interfaith church service in Waco...
This is just tragic. Very sad. Prayers!
Im so happy we have a caring President at this difficult time....sarcasm extreme
Uh, who in their right mind would allow a middle school, nursing home, apartments anywhere in the vicinity of a fertilizer plant knowing the energy potential involved? Holy crap. The amateur video was scary to say the least. Looked like an oversize IED going off.
“Im so happy we have a caring President at this difficult time”
As JimRob said a couple days ago, Obama is trying to do everything he can to catch the Boston bomber. He and Holder are on the golf course, searching behind every blade of grass.
I heard him say it on TV..I am hoping and praying it isn’t this bad..He was so upset...God bless the rescuers..We lost some tonight.(I’m in Waco just a few miles south..)
Of course it is being covered live still here.
This entire part of Texas is banding together to help.
Praying for all that are injured and those who mourn.
isn’t tomorrow the 20-year Anniversary of the Waco massacre?
Anyone else finding this a little spooky?
Waco - Fertilizer
There’s a link there somewhere
“It may be so horrific that they are afraid to say much of anything until they have more facts about both casualties and causes.”
When has that ever stopped the EVIL media when the facts don’t matter if it supports there leftist causes, such as Gun Control, Obama is the Messiah, ETC?
not saying it wasn’t an accident, but recall the Toulouse France fertilizer plant explosion a decade ago that had clear signs of terrorism.
“What an absolutely HORRIBLE week..first Boston..now this..unbelievable horror..just cant believe it”
This is all very sad, and it will be interesting how the Bummer and his EVIL allies in the SENATE try to politicize all this. Not as easy as going after the 2nd Amendment.
That said, the most unbelievable horror happended back in November when the most EVIL man ever to occupy the White Hut was reelected. America is on the verge of losing EVERYTHING!
It is time...Damn him to Hell, and it is time...to hold the those who voted for him, including the 25 million evangelical christians who voted for him responsible for the horror that this is for America. God is holding them responsible, it is time for the rest of us to make them the evil perps that they are.
that had to be one HUGE explosion - watch this
God be with them
