During the evening hours (8:50pm ET) of Wednesday 17th April, a huge explosion occured at The West Fertilizer Plant in West. (Located north of Waco in the state of Texas). The explosion ripped through the plant and sent a huge plume of smoke high into the air.

At the time of writing this, the local law enforcement have advised residents to evacuate - I believed mainly because of the risk of chemicals in the air, however news network KWKT are mentioning it's because of fears of a second explosion. There is currently a few reports that 60-70 people are dead, but there's no confirmation on this figure as of yet. KWKT are reporting though, that one policeman and five firefighters are reported dead.
