Is there a salt dome housing dangerous explosive gases in West, Texas??? There are plenty in Texas, Louisiana and other states. They are causing sink holes and dangerous gases are seeping out. Please check into this.
The Salt domes are in lower east Texas..have been there for decades.

Rock salt has a combination of characteristics that make it very attractive for the storage of crude oil and natural gas as well as other petroleum fuels. If the rock salt is relatively pure and does not contain significant amounts of other types of rock, it is generally impervious to both liquids and gases and inert to petroleum.

The domes are for national emergencies.

Uknown at this time, they're still digging through debris and body recovoery.

Preliminary reports a fire caused by welding or other means began to spread and a volunteer firemen hosing it with water...sprayed the water in a heated container of ammonia nitrate...very explosive.

Same material used in Oklahoma City bomb and the Texas City explosioin years ago on a ship.

Ammonia nitrate is used in fertilizer and needed around the country to feed the billions of people on the planet. The plants now will all be looked at and new regualtions..a very sad mistake.

Lack of regulations isn't the issue either, dumbass. The plant was inspected many times by fed and state. Your perfectly asinine statement is typical liberal fabricated propaganda BS comment like most of the things that come out of your mouth everytime there is a tragedy.

I pointed out to the other pisshead they have their own tragedies to worry about.

So do you!! Blast Kills 2, Injures 49 at Florida Electric Plant
April 9, 1999 | From Times Wire Services
A thunderous explosion heard at least 35 miles away rocked a power plant Thursday morning, killing two workers and injuring 49 other people, three critically. The blast tore a large section from a building holding the six coal-fired generators at the Tampa Electric Co. plant on the edge of Tampa Bay, two miles from downtown. "I heard a boom and saw a huge fireball coming," one worker at the plant said. "I thought I was back in Vietnam."

Practice what you fkn preach, jerkoff.

You stupid ignorant moron. An avalanche is natural. No one builds it. People build fertilizer plants. You need to hang out at one more often. Maybe you can fertilize that stultified half brain of yours.
