    Explosion! Driving home from Dallas tonight making a brief stop in West, Texas. Sudden blast shocked everyone. Photo captured seconds after the explosion. News reports a fertilizer plant caught fire. I was in the Little Czech Bakery ~3/4mile from the plant. The powerful blast shook the walls of the building hard. Loud shock wave felt unreal. Hope everyone's okay!
