HUGE EXPLOSION AT A TEXAS PLANT
This story made "The Five Things You Need To Know" this morning, and rightfully so. There was a HUGE explosion at a fertilizer plant in a small Texas town called "West" last night.
Two people were killed, but officials warned the public that as many as 70 could be dead by the time they have the chance to sort through the area.
The explosion happened at 8:50 P.M. at the West Fertilizer Plant. A fire started at the plant, and burned for at least half an hour. The two people killed were emergency service personnel.
The video is from a Dad that pulled over with his son to watch the fire when the plant exploded.
The explosion registered a 2.1 on the Richter scale.
