Default how about the leveled town in texas?

seriously , the hell with the crazy guy , i refuse to feed his need for notority and am choosing to turn away from the crazy and focus on the one needing help.

Scary part is this plant had been warned and fined in the past for insufficient safety.

Very sad.

Heard this on the radio on the way to work yesterday morning. So incredibly sad and they haven't ruled out criminal activity. Part of me hopes it was just a very unfortunate accident and not some other evil hearted person.

Very sad. I have been in West so many times. Very small Czech community and great food.

What the heck was going on there anyway? On at least a few news sites, I can't even find what they were making. Ammonium nitrate, or did the anhydrous ammonia go off on its own (which is possible, but very rare)?

How is it that after more than a day, they are still apparently only half way done searching homes? Who is running this search anyway?

I think an accident is pretty likely, but of course with everything else going on they are probably going to take an extra hard look. It is very sad. Immediately after it happened the estimated death toll was MASSIVELY higher than it has turned out to be... it is still horrible, but sounds like they were expecting casualties to be so much worse. And the fire was possibly going to be blown out of control and start spreading out of the city, mercifully it seems mother nature helped and that didn't happen.

My friend can't understand why they built nursing homes and schools so close to the plant. It is known that these chemicals are fragile and this is a high risk job... didn't one blow a few years ago too? I don't think it was in Texas but the story seems familiar. You would think they wouldn't want to build ANYTHING that close to it. =<

The Czech Republic is in Germany.
Chechnya (Boston suspects) is in Russia.

The news last night here said they weren't making anything, they were storing ammonium nitrate. Or something.
