It hit an apartment building pretty heavily. Hopefully the injuries are minimal

Heard this was near Waco.

I worked out there. I wonder what plant it was.

Yep. The FBI already issued a statement that they are looking into the explosion.

It's a fertilizer plant. I'm pretty sure they're not going to find anything/hope that they aren't expecting to find anything

i think it's probably more likely this is an unplanned violent chemical reaction than another attack. I think the fact that it happened near waco, near the 20th anniversary of the cult stuff there, and days after the marathon bombing are all coincidental.


but i'm also the guy who thinks i can live off celery and multivitamins, so don't listen to me.

That video made it look like that truck was right in it. They had to be a good 10 miles away.

Fertilizer can be used to make bombs. Who in their right mind would take a kid to watch a fertilizer plant fire?

And then this guy posts the video. Father of the year.
