I only heard about the explosion near Waco early this morning. Then I saw this video and it really brings it home.

This is cell video a father is taking from his car. Just looking at the video, it shows that the fertilizer plant was on fire for a while before the eventual massive explosion. The explosion was so massive that it registered over a 2 on the Richter Scale. That's the one that measures earthquakes!

The huge blowout is actually in West, TX, about 18 miles north of Waco.

It's impossible the truly feel the power of this explosion just from a video. But you can get close, judging that this video looks like its around a mile away, yet it still rocks the people in the car pretty ferociously.
