what i understand is they where holding and selling kind of fertilizer similar to the kind used in OKcity bombing. I am not to chemistry savvy , so I dont know the details of that.

I think there is a problem with leaking gas also hindering search efforts.

Well, the Czech Republic isn't IN Germany, it's a sovereign country. It's bordered by Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Poland though. Chechnya is in lower Russia, above Turkey and between the Black and Caspian Seas.

Most the people that live in West have been here for a while (as in generations). There are lots of little communities in Texas where a group of Czech, German, etc immigrants settled and they like to hold on to at least a bit of that tradition. The older gens still often speak czech. The town is between college station and okc so we'd stop there for kolaches often. My dad introduced me to the kolaches there. Hillsboro is always a traffic cluster so I usually needed a break at about that point in the trip.

As far as I know it was fertilizer. It sounds like an accident to me and hopefully it was. Still very sad. It's not a very big town and it will be a huge impact on the town.

Do you know what they were warned for? I've seen those reports but not specifics. Really it could be anything from missing toerails on catwalks to tanks that are rusting through. Safety concerns is a broad range.

This.

But of course, what a coincidence that would have been

CNN reported on this:

It's unclear whether the plant had safety problems. But in 2006, the Environmental Protection Agency fined the company that ran the fertilizer plant $2,300 and told the owners to correct problems that included a failure to file a risk management program plan on time.

Seven years ago, the company had a complaint against it for a lingering smell of ammonia, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality website shows.

Having worked in a solvent plant around rather explosive chemicals and working within the safety guidelines that go with such a workplace, I'm personally curious as to what happened. Doesn't lessen the tragedy in any way -- what a nightmare for everyone involved.
