I was thinking of the Texas prosecutors assassinated from revenge.
Yeah, and that company was cited for not documenting emergency planning and hazard mitigation (if they had done any planning besides 'getting the hell out of here').
I wonder if the workers are covered by Workman's Comp? Republicans want to limit tort reform so the neighbors who lost everything can't *profit* from this. But, ya know, the plant owners are *job creators*...

Seriously folks, I don't think 'we' should dispel this until it's determined what caused the large explosion. As I mentioned earlier I smell a rat!

It would seem evident that if it was an underground tank that exploded they'd know
right off. Because of the white flash and how it rocked the earth (2.2 on rector scale) it resembles
that type of explosion.

There are exact methods of determining the kind of explosion it was by the kind and type of damage it did but I've not heard and info to that effect.

Something is being hidden-nothing they say sounds right:?:

*=* I don't get it M69?*=*
After reviewing all I could find on the internet I'm more suspicious than ever.
Firefighters said they knew there'd be an explosion.
Evacuations were instigated before the explosion
knowing it was coming.
Those volunteers knew what their destiny was, they were just trying to delay it by fighting the fire
to gain some time.
~~~~~~~~~~
There's still many questions to be answered:
Why no aerial pictures?
Why fires allover town?
What caused the explosion to be directed in a definite direction?
Was a atomic fusion test performed?
Just to ask a few...

Right. We all know how well the government regulates and runs things.

What a shame so many first responders lost their lives.

Did anyone hear. Who was there first the ppl or the plant because I can't image building a school so close to that.

Check out your area it's the same way.
We've got'm here in Greensburg. One actually stores and manufacters
fertilizer the other has large steel tanks they store highly combustable and toxic chemicals in.
I suspect they're all over the country.
How they stay under the radar 'i'm not sure-some are 'grandfathered' in.

I'm not sure where a fertilizer plant is in my area but you're probably right.

They said that plant hadn't been inspected in a long time..

Thats scarey so close to a school and a residential area..

The explosion took 3 of the 4 schools out-
what if it had happened during class time?
Sandy Hook would have been a small tragedy.

Big difference - Sandy Hook was intentional.

93 feet wide, 10 ft. deep crater-what's it take (how large a force) to make a crater that size?

ATF: West blast crater 93 ft wide, 10 ft deep

The enormous fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas left a crater 93 feet across and 10 feet deep.

Robert Chapman, a special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said at a Tuesday afternoon press conference that ATF agents are investigating the blast and are expected to stay on site for several more days.

They are using the blast pattern to learn more about the explosion, especially what caused it and why.

Chapman said investigators don’t yet know exactly which chemicals and in what quantity were present at the time of explosion. ATF agents are interviewing as many witnesses as they can to learn what caused the blast, he said.

Fire investigators have ruled out natural causes—such as a lightning strike—as a start to the initial fire. Assistant State Fire Marshal Kelly Kistner said the fire’s cause could still be ruled any of three classifications: intentional, accidental or undetermined.

West’s Mayor Pro Tem Steven Vanek said inspectors and engineers are working hard to determine when it will be safe for residents to return home. He said that displaced residents should not worry about their possessions, saying they have police regularly patrolling the evacuated neighborhoods.

Crews are still working to restore utilities to much of the town. Vanek said while the south side of town still has water service, the water is not safe for consumption. He said that anyone in West should be drinking donated bottled water.

City crews are also making their way through the city’s streets, clearing debris which could pose hazards to returning residents.

I've been comparing this to the Oklahoma City bombing, the website is below if you'd care to do the same.

My theory of a buried diesel fuel tank and ammonium nitrate mixing and ignited by the fire.
