I don't know. Not sure but that is crazy.
When I saw this a few hours ago they were saying no fatalities.. Now I just saw that video posted (crazy btw) & it's at 70. Just awful.
Golden is better then Jimbo... I feared it was true. He is going to hoist a crystal ball there - fsufsu
It's not from this explosion it was a 2008 oil refinery explosion
Oh okay. Well that explains it.
No joke. When it exploded. It felt like something slammed against our house..... and I live 50 miles away.

When I see stuff like this I feel like an idiot for getting so worked up over sports, recruiting & other crap that doesn't matter. Wow.
Dude I felt like it jolted my phone when watching the video.
dosent appear their worried about it. Looks like they are back over by the plant tring to put the fire out.
No kidding. Just went and hugged my wife and son again
Dude, that is just mind numbing
Prayers sent to those firefighters
At least they died quick, my god what a explosion
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
No shit right ?
I was like ugh.... Looks like a fire to me.... Nevermind, i felt like i was there
Edit: we too live 50 miles away and it felt the same.

Never seen anything like that before.
McVeigh used fertilizer in the OKC bombing. Shit is no joke.
Where you at? We live in Ellis County
Good God that video is insane. Like you guys said, felt the jolt just watching it
The full video with the kids reaction was really crazy.
From what I read it was a small fire and when the firefighters tried to extinguish, water contacted ammonia nitrate and thus the explosion.
Just south of corsicana in freestone county. Wortham.
O well scratch that. CNN just said their is a 3 mile exclusion zone around the plant. So apparently thier is no one tring ot put it out. Everyone including police and fire department are tring to haul tail away from it. So the other tank could still blow. Bad thing is everyone that is trapped in the homes around the first explosion is trapped because the police and fire department do not want to risk the exposure to the harmful gas and the second explosion.
wow. prayers sent to all
Got ya. We are in Midlothian. With the recent earthquakes in Ellis Co we just assumed thats what we felt.
Sounds like anhydrous ammonia, ammonia nitrate is endothermic.
The wife said wow I guess its gonna storm bad. Weird BC the skies were clear a second ago.
Then we started getting social media updates.
No doubt. It's bad bad stuff if used wrong.
