Picking Up the Pieces in West, Texas after Fertilizer Plant Explosion

Hosted by

In the town of West, near Waco, Texas, a fertilizer plant exploded last night with enough force to register on earthquake monitors. Between five and 15 people were killed, more than 160 have been hospitalized with injuries, and the search for more victims continues. Speaking of the "nightmare scenario," Texas Governor Rick Perry called their emergency management team "the best…in the country," adding that "they certainly were at their best last night — along with the citizens."
