    Registered a magnitude 2.1 by the USGS. Listening to reports from as far away as outside of Fort Worth and Waxahatchie, I'm surprised there are any structures still standing in West. Most of the energy must have been directed down and up. Sorry for all the lives lost.

    They are saying the West, TX volunteer fire department was fighting the fire when the big explosion happened. The loss of life here is gonna to be heavy.

    Preliminary estimates are up to 200 killed on msnbc news. A very sad day indeed. My prayers go out to the West community.

    There was an apartment complex leveled and I guess luckily it was in the evening because the high school and middle school are right beside the plant. Their hospital is about 1000 feet away.

    Wow MSNBC was way off. ABC news is saying 5-15 people were killed. One guy videoed the blast and it knocked him down.

    What the Hell are you doing watching MESSNBC much less passing on their lies and drivel??? I was by there an hour before this coming back from Gause , TX. Glad I was early. Nice little town. Lot of work being done on I 35 there. Lot of Czechs in that area and tourist shops and restaurants. They will pull through after the crying stops. Prayers to all the dead and injured.

    I'm looking for a new start page. I had msn.com for years and they recently try to force you to use bing so I left them. I haven't found a good one yet. You're right about the drivel. I'm open to suggestions.
