I know about the blast - have been trying to keep up with it via the internet but what is in this video?

Around 60 reported dead, and many injuries.

I would imagine many of the injuries are burn victims, and that’s the worst kind of pain.

Pray PRAY!!!!

CCTV is reporting the bigger numbers and are using Waco TV feeds. I’ve seen scant a word on Fox (just a minute or two). This is massive and even Drudge just has one line.

Family in a car filming the fire when it suddenly explodes. Girl screams she can hear and to ‘get out of here’ over and over. Complete chaos.

The burning tank explodes. It’s safe to watch. I do hope we get an update. Obviously they made it out safely or we wouldn’t have the video. It’s the daughter’s hearing that is of concern after the horrific blast.

Looks like a nuke hit, almost.

You see the fire from the view of a man and his daughter in his P/U. The fire is already huge, then it seems to get even bigger, and then it blows up. It startled me while I was watching it. The man’s daughter evidently loses her hearing and she is begging him to “get out of here.”

He probably can’t hear her either, judging by the audio.

View from Galveston (Texas City Disaster, April 16, 1947)

It's like déjà vu all over again.

It is the other way around, towns go up around the plants. People naturally start to build closer and closer to where they work.

Wow that explosion shocked me.

I wonder how many tons of TNT that explosion ranked as. It was defiantly huge!
As one guy on the Youtube forum remarked Massachusetts ain’t got shit on Texas when it comes to big bangs. Tragically there is probably quite a lot of casualties, my heart goes out to them.

I think next time i do drive thou the town i will stop for food or something there.
