Yea I dont remember my chemistry was just referencing what I read on a local news site. They said it was similar to the OKC bomb
dude better get ur gas masks on. Breathing in some bad stuff right their.
If it was anhydrous ammonia this is how toxic the fumes are. (don't worry this is informative video with acting for EMT training)
Anhydrous Ammonia Poisoning Warning Video for training - First Responders
Thats what scares me. Strong wind blowing north towards us. I have a 3 yr old and a pregnant wife.
I wouldn't take any chances... JMO
Best of luck though.
Golden is better then Jimbo... I feared it was true. He is going to hoist a crystal ball there - fsufsu
Stay indoors the stuff is super bad for you when inhaled. If you are 50 miles away you shouldn't really have to worry about it just keeps doors and stuff closed.
dude did it kill that guy
stay safe man, hope everyone in the area comes out of this ok.
Pregnant wife and 5 year old...
Given the distance I think we're fine. But we'll be staying alert to reports just in case.
It is a training video for EMTs read the comments. But it can kill that fast and there are videos where a leak kills a entire herd of cows in a few minutes.
man im sitting here watching cnn just expecting any second for this second tank to blow its got me freaking out.
Same here. Big storms expected tonight here in Texas so hopefully it will put out the fires, but I dont want that crap raining down on us.
From what I'm reading that's not the problem. On the police scanner they said there was a 100ton railcar of the ahnydous ammonia put there this morning.
For those watching CNN the officer they just showed directing ambulance personnel is a guy I went to High school with. Just hit even closer to home.
dude if that blows............
Wow. I stopped at the Czech Stop on Monday on my way back in from Austin
Anhydrous Ammonia reaction with H2O. Add fire and a 100ton rail car and we've got major problems! Pray everything works out safely as possible.
it registered as a 2.1 earthquake from a site 25 miles away.
watching CNN and they are only reporting 3 confirmed deaths. Obviously the number is much higher than that in reality but only 3 confirmed at this time.
They are saying that there are numerous fire fighters unaccounted for. Is this a situation where the bodies could have been completely reduced to ash? Im not sure if that is only possible in Hollywood or not but it seems that if it was this blast would do it.
Most likely, between the explosion and the ongoing fire there probably won't be many remains. Also, from the sounds of it they are having everyone stay away so there has been no search effort.
Yeah, according tobthe lical news they have cleared a 3 mile radius from the blast zone and no search is going on in there right now. There could still be people trapped inside that zone. Absolutely tragic
How close was that video taken from? I'm pretty surprised his truck didn't get flipped.
Being a Texan, it's crazy to see/hear/listen to people say they felt the blast in east Dallas.
Thoughts and prayers to all the families. Horrible.
