An explosion at a chemical plant in Texas killed about 70 people.

The ambulance service head, George Smith, said that an explosion in Texas killed about 70 people. Rescue services, in turn, talk about the death of 5 firefighters and 1 police officers who worked at the scene.


TV channel ABC reports 200 injured. 40 people are in critical condition, said Gail Scarborough, a spokesman for the public safety department.

Authorities are asking residents to leave the city. The population of the West, where the plant is located, is 2,8 thousand people. The US National Weather Service reports a toxic cloud that is approaching neighboring communities. In addition, the danger of a second explosion remains.

Tommy Muska, the mayor of the city of West, gave a press conference three hours after the explosion, telling reporters that he did not know the exact number of dead and injured. However, he confirmed that among the victims were residents of the nursing home. Some of them were under the rubble. According to him, all 133 pensioners were evacuated, including the disabled: “We got there and took care of them.” He also said that buildings within a radius of five blocks from the plant were badly damaged by the blast wave.

According to various estimates, from 75 to 100 houses lie in ruins. 10 buildings are on fire, including urban high school, local media reported.

In an interview with The Associated Press, one of the residents of the city, teacher Debbie Marak, said that schoolchildren had told her about the smoke near the plant. Children according to the authorities claimed that the company would soon explode. “It was like a tornado. The surrounding objects rose into the air. The windshield knocked my windshield, ”describes Marak, an 58-year-old.

The explosion occurred in 7: 50 local time. What was the cause of the incident is still not clear.

        in a row explosions suggest intentional destabilization

        Повторение старого сценария на новый лад? Бостонский взрыв, техасский взрыв, плюс ядовитые письма - все, как в 2001-м:" 18.04.2013, Вашингтон 03:59:04 В штате Миссисипи был арестован подозреваемый в отправке писем с ядовитым веществом рицин руководству США. Об этом сообщает американский телеканал NBC со ссылкой на источники в ФБР. Автором писем был Кеннет Кертис из г.Тупело, штат Миссисипи.
        По данным правоохранительных органов, в письмах на имя президента США Барака Обамы и сенатора от Мичигана Роджера Уикера было идентичное завершающее предложение - "быть свидетелями злых поступков и не остановить их означает стать соучастником". Кроме того, в обоих письмах присутствовала фраза "Я, КК, поддерживаю это послание" (I am KC and I approve this message), которое служит вариацией "подписей" предвыборных "слоганов" политиков в США, в том числе Б.Обамы.Письмо к президенту было перехвачено в центре обработки корреспонденции за пределами Белого дома. Письмо для Б.Обамы было отправлено с обозначением обратного адреса - из г.Мемфис, штат Теннесси. Письмо к Р.Уикеру обратного адреса не содержало.Тем временем ФБР подтвердило, что письмо на имя Б.Обамы содержало следы рицина.http://www.rbc.ru/rbcfreenews/20130418035904.shtml

            I would not want to, Venezuela is very pretty as a socialist country. and the United States itself won’t go into this open political suicide - all Latin America will react negatively to this. and it’s not Asia, it’s at their side. all the more so right now Venezuela has a c300. more likely if Colombia is poisoned. but an attack requires a multiple advantage, and there the situation, as it were, to say the least, is ambiguous.

              В принципе цветочная революция в Венесуелле видимо уже провалилась, чависты не дрогнули, но могут объявить, что взрывы организовал Мадуро и развяжут себе рученки. Тревожно, но не безнадежно. Ну и Коприлес, как обычно по заветам ребе, в частности приобрел квартиру в Нью-Йорке, т.е. видимо выделенный госдепом бакшиш на "цветы" и прежде всего подкуп силовиков потырили и получилось жалкое зрелище.

        Surely they will say that an accidental explosion



        Nitrogen compounds form the basis of all explosives and rocket fuel. There was already a case in Texas when a rocket fuel plant exploded - the dead were not counted due to the absence of anything suitable for counting at the bottom of the funnel. So everything is very serious.
        Well, ammonia in the atmosphere is also not good. We are waiting for not just acidic, but very acidic rains all along the coast.

          The Abama administration pushed through sequestration. The military and, especially, the arms lobby do not like this at all. An image of the enemy, great and terrible, is urgently needed. Al-Qaeda stopped rolling, it became very manual, quiet and calm, just one text and no matter what.
          Now another enemy will be presented on a silver platter. For example, Syria, Iran, Korea, Russia and China, as their patrons. The hysteria will flare up with renewed vigor, the military budget will not just fill up, it will swell and everything will be okay (in American way).
          What a policy! Nothing new, everything has already passed!
          А теперь можете минусовать. Мне их не жалко!!! Они дружно вопили "ОДОБРЯМ" когда утюжили Ирак, Ливию, Сербию. Ныне "ОДОБРЯМ" дерьму в Сирии. Ложь, густо замешанная на крови, одобряется американским обществом. Нам можно жечь и убивать, а нас не тронь. Мы образец демократии!

            You did not forget to mention the drones which now, almost certainly, will be circling in dense clouds over the territory of American cities. And since Syria is most likely to be the enemy, SyShyA sent military strategists to Jordan for planning the operation of the SSA.

Рядом с ним находится второй резервуар с аммиаком, из-за угрозы взрыва которого и possible leakage of hazardous substance evacuation of residents of several nearby areas of the city, Forbes notes The version of the attack is not yet considered -: http://radiovesti.ru/article/show/article_id/89361:

Only I’m interested in something else, 55 were resurrected from the dead, or upon identification it turned out that they were not Americans, but for example emigrants, i.e. not people just do it?

          Or maybe as we have with pedestrian arrivals by drunk drivers. After all, they always ran in, the media were not particularly noisy. And here the new law needed to be pushed to toughen punishments and immediately began to show on television here and there they ran into the kids, then there. In the end, it turned out that the law was dragged almost without pain for government authority. I cannot rule out the possibility that the amers want to push the law on drones over large cities, which the people do not like.

      Latest Explosion News

      Visitors to the Reddit collective blog and 4chan imageboard vividly responded to FBI requests to help investigate the Boston attack. The feds most likely expected eyewitnesses to provide them with photo and video evidence, but the Americans went even further. Anonymous online forums may have identified specific criminals who staged a terrorist attack at the finish of the marathon.

      So, 4chan users, mainly involved in trolling and production of demotivators, studied gigabytes of pictures and video materials taken at the scene of the tragedy. Attentive users drew attention to a strange man in a white cap, dressed in a black shirt and black pants, behind whose shoulders there is a huge backpack. The criminologists found a similar bag at the scene of the explosion. However, the suspicions of voluntary police assistants generally concerned all people with large backpacks.

      The image can be enlarged, click RMB and then open the image.

      Anyone with a large bag will automatically fall under the supervision of users

      Пока следователи выясняют, насколько верно предположение 4chan'ерсов, юзеры сами спорят о правдивости своей теории. Главным аргументом тех, кто считает "черного" мужчину в светлом головном уборе виновным в гибели трех человек, стал тот факт, что на части фотографий он заснят уже без злополучного портфеля.


      Portfolio completely disappeared from the back of a potential criminal

      Their opponents argue that the attack was arranged by a completely different person, also supporting his version with evidence. The initiative group created a table using the Google Docs service, in which the opinions of all participants in the discussion are recorded.


      Эти люди возглавляют "рейтинг" подозреваемых

      Похожее обсуждение также развязалось на платформе Reddit. Часть блогеров, правда, отнеслась к поведению "онлайн-детективов" скептически. "Кто знает? Возможно, вам не повезет, и кто-то посчитает ваше домашнее животное террористом. Я видел по крайней мере 10 человек, которых подозревают в Интернете, и могу сказать, что далеко не все версии имеют право на существование. Нужно быть очень осторожным, обвиняя кого-то в убийстве трех и ранении сотен людей. Нельзя основываться только на местоположении человека и наличии или отсутствии у него рюкзака", — заявил один из критиков в теме findbostonbombers.

      On April 17, media reported that police detained the first terrorist suspect. Nevertheless, Boston law enforcement officers soon denied this information. The explosions at the finish of the Boston marathon thundered on April 15. 3 people, including an eight-year-old child, were killed, more than 180 were hospitalized. Many victims of the attack have lost limbs. There were no Russians among the victims.

      Looking through these photos, who else will have doubts that the explosions were prepared by the military? look how they are standing, how they are dressed.

      "В интервью The Associated Press одна из жительниц города - учительница Дэбби Марак - рассказала, что о дыме вблизи завода ей рассказали школьники. Дети со слов властей утверждали, что предприятие скоро взорвется."

      Школьники не подготовились к экзамену....У нас дети в таких случаях "телефонным терроризмом" балуются...
      Sorry could not resist.
      As usual, innocent people, hard workers and their families died, condolences.

        Ammonium nitrate is self-sufficient for an explosion. And during the explosion of ammonium nitrate, nitrogen oxides are released, which are very unfavorable for breathing.
        An explosion of potassium, sodium or calcium nitrate requires fuel mixed with nitrate in advance.

      Не удивлюсь,если амеры найдут "террористические корни" этой трагедии и опять куда ни будь влезут с "миссией спасения"(как у Цезаря:ему нужно было золото - он пошел "спасать" галлов.В результате и золото появилось,и галлы куда то делись),а то у них прямо один к одному:взрыв на забеге,яд в письме,взрыв на заводе... Не много ли "одномоментных" проблем?

    Well, here they have a mess in bulk - a factory near the city, and they don’t sew any trunks at the factory!
    Nursing home, school, housing.
    What is interesting about this Texas is that it burns or explodes all the time, or do they work in the management of these enterprises ... or is there an effective cost saving?

        Epicenter - two hundred meters.
        The zone of complete destruction is up to a kilometer across.
        Impressive.
        But this is not the topic of today's incident, already in 1988, as can be seen in the title of the video.

    After the bombings in Boston, explosions thundered in Atlanta and Santa Clara. So, in Atlanta, the explosion occurred during a motor rally.

    The explosion injured one person. The police say that he opened a package, after which an explosion occurred. A man with burns was taken to the hospital.

    Currently, police are finding out what was in the package. The street on which the incident occurred is blocked.

    Atlanta police are on high alert in the light of the events that happened the day before in Boston. And in northern California, the transformers of the largest electricity supplier company, PG & E, were shot at by unknowns, after which one of the company's key substations caught fire.

    PG & E executives called on Silicon Valley residents, where transformers were installed, to reduce energy consumption. A company spokesman, Jason King, commented on the situation, calling the incident an act of vandalism.

    Он рассказал, что пожар, вспыхнувший на подстанции, вызвал утечку охлаждающего масла. "Рано утром были слышны выстрелы на объекте", - заявил он. Компания продолжает оценивать причиненный ущерб.

      А в Техасе, случаем, не "Ветвь Давидова" порезвилась? Завтра как раз двадцатилетие штурма их секты в Уэйко:

      The Siege of Mount Carmel (Siege of Waco; Eng. Waco Siege) - A siege by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation Mount Carmel Estate in Waco, Texas, where members of the David Branch religious sect were in 1993. During the events killed 79 members of the sect.

      The siege lasted 50 days and ended in an assault in which about 700 people took part with the support of tanks and helicopters. During the assault on the estate, a fire broke out. According to the official version, the sectarians set themselves on fire. Survivors and critics claimed that the fire occurred as a result of the use of explosive gas.

      This explosion really fits into a series of recent events in the USA - finding a moron with matches is not a problem, the main thing is that he strike them at the right place and at the right time.

    Do not be dashing while it is quiet.
    Игры с "внутренним терроризмом" крайне опасны.
    Judging by the video from America, people have little idea of ​​the degree of trouble.
    I am afraid of a chain reaction.
    I feel sorry for the victims.

    All according to the scenario as in a cheap movie. The chemical plant has fallen, a toxic cloud covers nearby villages. Now we are waiting for a crowd of zombies or mutants. In short, Hollywood in one word. Links of one chain. Boston bombings, poisoned letters, now here's a gas attack. Then they will find the Syrian or Korean trace ...

    But we had the Sayano-Shushenskaya, Nevsky Express, terrorist attacks in Moscow, the Caucasus and what poor 3.14indos oh how sympathized with us? Nonsense! Therefore, ordinary innocent people there just want to say, run away from your creep, rolling along an inclined country, there is still an opportunity. I recalled an article on this site. The pilot who took part in the bombing of Hiroshima was asked if he repeated what he had done in August 1945, to which he said yes, yes. So what kind of sympathy can be discussed at the moment.

    Sympathy for the victims, condolences to the families and friends of the victims.
    There can be two reasons for what happened:
    1. Elementary sloppiness, the so-called human factor.
    2. Алаверды за многолетнюю "человеколюбивую" политику в мире, счетов накопилось много.

    Ну на самом деле это еще на самый мощный взрыв, который пережил техас была там трагедия пострашнее и скажем так, вот примерно где-то в конце 40-х тоже в техасе на побережье загорелось судно класса либерти(около 10000тонн водоизмещения) судно было под завязку заполнено силитрой (из Чили если быть точным), ну вот пожарные приехали тушить со всей округи ну в момент заливания очага водой произошла взрывная реакция, рванула так, что снесло весь город.... оценили уж не помню, но в килотоннах измеряли точно( вроде близко было к "Малышу" которой над Нагасаки взорвали, так что в принципе трагедия имеет давние корни, видно с техникой безопасности там до сих пор не все в порядке....
