    West Texas Explosion


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     briankitchen was on his way home to Austin, Texas, from Dallas on Wednesday night. He had stopped in a small convenience store in West when he felt the explosion. He said everyone felt a sense of danger. 'It shook that convenience store pretty hard. I exited the building and snapped this pic with my phone. I tried going back into the convenience store but an employee was asking everyone to leave.' Read more about the explosion on CNN.
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    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!
