Pretty wicked, I love how the news said 70 confirmed dead yesterday, now it's 5 to 15.. They need to just stfu till they have facts.

It's always amazed me how these plants and grain elevators are always in/near town. I've been around when they have blown up before. The grain elevator that blew up in NE while I was there is the loudest noises I've ever heard, I was a good 5-10 miles away and the ground shook. The 80-90's were really bad for that shit because they made laws forcing them to control the grain dust, never used to be a risk when they just let it blow outside.

The father of the year thing is debatable... i dont think he knew it was going to explode... he was plenty far away... I'm sure his daughter just had her ears ringing... If she ruptured her ear drum, she'd be a lot more frantic, probably screaming in pain... None the less i hope everyone in Waco is doing alright, and is getting proper medical treatment.. Prayers are going their way.
It comes and it goes. Get it while it Lasts.

That dense motherfucker needs a swift kick in the ass. Clearly should not have children if your first priority when danger strikes is to whip out your phone rather than get your own fucking child as far away as possible.
