A horrific explosion at a fertilizer factory 60 miles north of Waco, Texas has killed many dozens and injured hundreds Wednesday evening, April 17.  At least five firefighters and one police officer were among the fatalities.

The first explosion took place at 7:50 p.m. local time, which was followed by secondary explosions.  A nearby nursing home and an apartment complex were also heavily damaged, and approximately 60 – 80 homes and businesses as well as a middle school have been completely destroyed thus far.

The explosion knocked out power to many local customers and could be heard and felt for miles around.

Local resident Lydia Zimmerman told television station KWTX that she, her husband and daughter were in their garden in Bynum, when they heard multiple blasts. “It sounded like three bombs going off very close to us,” she said.

At this point no one is speculating about the source of the explosion, but tempers across America were stretched to the breaking point by the bombings at the Boston Marathon on Monday, the discovery of ricin-laced letters addressed to a Republican senator and also to President Barack Obama, and then today’s explosion in Texas.

    It will be interesting to see what information comes forth from this event.

  2. Edward Lobel says:

    Don't worry Gil, they'll find some reason to blame it on President Obama! (LOL)

    On the other hand, he Boston Marathan can be blamed in part by the NRA"s wayne lapierre and every republican in the house and senate!
    They morans blocked legislation that would have mandated a "signature" in all gun powder making it easy to trace where it came from!
