I heard this explosion tonight in the city of Mansfield, Texas which is about 60 miles away from the explosion! I was leaving the Target in Mansfield and it started to rain I thought I heard some loud thunder, but I didn't think the storm had any lightning so it surprised me a bit. I've got a friend in Waxahachie, Texas who thought there was an earthquake. Turns out it was a massive explosion at a fertilizer plant in the city of West, just outside of Waco, Texas. How big does a blast have to be for it to be felt 50 miles away as if it were an earthquake and for me to think it was a lightning/thunder crash in Mansfield?

Starting to see the news scanner sites pick up the story, it should make the news pretty soon I would think. - - - Updated - - - http://fox17online.com/2013/04/17/explosion-outside-waco-texas-injuries-reported/#axzz2Qm5yTV7B Kasey Murphy - - - Updated - - - Here is a local Waco station. http://www.kwtx.com/home/headlines/...orted-At-West-Fertilizer-Plant-203505331.html - - - Updated - - - Looks like the story just went National on Fox News.
