A massive explosion occurred in Texas, at a fertilizer plant near the town of West, and left the entire area obliterated and looking like a warzone. The death toll is feared to be hovering around 70 people, while 3 have been confirmed dead, with over 24 others wounded. A couple of firefighters are still missing and authorities believe that there may still be people trapped in the facility.
172 people in total have been hospitalized with various levels of seriousness as regards to injuries. The smoke from the deluge caused heat and suffocation that contributed to the increased number of people pouring into emergency rooms. The building facility was on fire earlier on Wednesday night and grew larger and wider, it further spread to homes and buildings nearby while firefighters tried to battle the conflagration.
“It will take some time” says authorities “to discover the full extent of damage caused by the explosion”.
