Massive explosion near Waco,Texas. Fire, homes leveled, near fertilizer plant
 
A new unfolding story. This has potential to be a major disaster. Early reports are not good at all. No idea what caused this yet. It was a massive explosion around 8pm. Some say that a fire started and caused a tank to blow up. A small town of 2,500 north of Waco.

the story thus far

Not much known yet. Apparently a 3 mile radius has been set up around the explosion site.

well, this looks like it's going to be bad :sad: I mean a fertilizer plant is basically like an explosives factory.

I sincerely hope conspiracy theorists don't label this as false-flagged, like they do for most serious national events (i.e., just recently, the Boston Marathon explosion).

Omg that video. Hope the nothing permanent happened to the ones filming and that nobody died, though looking at the video it seems unlikely that nobody died... :(

I don't believe this was false-flagged but at least I find it suspicious that two terrible incidents happen within days in the same country.

I believe the ones filming are OK as they uploaded the video.

You'll go crazy if you constantly think like this. It was merely a coincidence. And a note to everyone; if somebody claims this event was false-flagged, ask them "how, exactly, is this beneficial for the elite/government?". I mean, where is the merit behind this? There is nothing to gain.

But did you hear the kid saying that he/she can't hear? That was heartbreaking to listen to...

Still, if one's kid has lost his/her hearing, I doubt he'd have time to upload a video to Youtube.

Obviously :rolleyes:. I just wanted to express my hope that everything is alright with the people who filmed the video and that I hope the kid didn't lose his/her hearing. Of course they're fit enough to upload a vid but that doesn't say too much does it?

Not sure if this is satire or sheer stupidity:

A suspicious explosion at a fertilizer plant????

About as suspicious as an explosion at Mt. St. Helen I would say.
