  •  The town is mostly destroyed (9+ / 0-)

    This is an historic disaster, comparable to the Texas City disaster.  A nursing home has collapsed and people are trapped inside. An apartment complex was blown to pieces.  Many entire homes are missing.  There is a huge risk of anhydrous ammonia leak, and a secondary explosion of fertilizer.  Every employee of the Waco hospital is rushing in to work to help, hundreds of people, while several are being sent as far away as Dallas.
