“It was like a nuclear bomb went off,” said West Mayor Tommy Muska.
It is said that 10 to 15 buildings have been totally demolished and probably 50 homes were heavily damaged.
People expect more to be found dead because this is a very big one and some people might still be trapped in collapsed buildings.
Yahoo News reported that, Texas Public Safety Department spokesman D.L. Wilson said about half the town, about eight to 10 blocks, had been evacuated and that “we might even have to evacuate on the other side of town” if winds shifted.
The cause of the explosion is not immediately known.
It is really sad and scary to see another huge explosion just two days after the ones in Boston.
