All SA news said is "dozens injured"
Wow, this is just terrible. Thoughts & prayers to those in West.
Only story on KHOU 11 news...they are saying another explosion could happen and an evacuation is in order in place

They're telling everyone to leave town now due to the possibility of another explosion.
Didn't knowingly feel it here in Waco. Have some good friends firefighting and on EMT.
That explosion . . . I mean, holy shit. If there was ever a time for invective, that's it.
Insane. Had no idea what was meant by explosion until I saw that video. OMG.
Holy crap! I'm with the little girl! "PLEASE GET OUT OF HERE!
That poor kid.
I actually jumped and yelled watching that.
Prayers for everyone effected.
Pro Ecclesia, Pro Mundus
I helped move the mother of two of my good friends out of her house in West about two years ago. That house is basically leveled now. The younger brother still knows plenty of people in that small town. Hits pretty close to home. Crazy how powerful that explosion was.
Listening to Foxnews. Just interviewed the mayor of west. Said 75-100 homes may be destroyed, a school, the nursing home, etc. There will definitely be casualties.
No idea how many are dead.
This hits very close to home.
and I'm 99% sure Marty Crawford is the principal or superintendent.
Guys, the death count on this one is going to be very high. The reason they aren't releasing anything yet is because they won't send in responders until the fire at the fertilizer plant is out. You know there are people trapped in those buildings, but they can't get to them.
That doesn't even count the bodies.
and there may be more tanks on fire
Baylor students are holding a prayer service in front of Waco Hall at midnight. This is one of the reasons I'm proud to be a Bear. Praying for West.
Information is sketchy and much is inaccurate.
I heard from an ER Doc at Hillcrest and he says they have received about 60 patients but NO DOA's. Take that for what it's worth. But it sounds like positive news to me. Hope it's right.
I'll be pissed if they don't turn Diadeloso into Diadelwest tomorrow. I really hope the students aren't dumb enough to go drinking on 10th the morning after something like this has occurred.
News 25 just reported they are hearing no casualties from the Nursing Home. Did an interview with a lady.
Also saying still no casualties. I just can't imagine no one dying from this.
Well bummer. It seems that Hillcrest may have set up a triage area north of town. So, it's possible that those who have already perished are not being set to the main hospital.
Channel 10 reporting 5 firefighters may have died in the explosion.
