Sure all have heard of the horrible destruction there. Let us keep those folks in our prayers.

Prayers for them.

Fertilizer plants have a bad habit of having fires and exploding. The larger the plant, the larger the hazards.

Thats wonderful news folks. I did not know how prevalent those things blew up. Heard of one in France that was a real baddy..and then heard of the one in Texas City which killed 500+ in 1947. Ya know that said on TV the place was not even a plant but some type of storage facility for the product which was made elsewhere. Last report we heard looks like the deceased is going to number around a hundred. Do not think I would want to live anywhere close to one of those places.
