I'm sure they were much closer to that plant than it looked in the video. Apart from phone cameras being pretty wide, it didn't take long for the sound of the explosion to hit them. Hope that kids ears are ok

I didn't watch that whole video earlier when Danny posted it, I thought it was just video of he fire. They then played it on the news and I saw the explosion. Jesus.

I'm sure you've already heard that the explosion was felt all the way in the Metroplex, 70+ miles away

Shit that video is scary. The explosion looks like it was going straight at the car at a million miles a second

According to the news, that is pretty much the entire city. Not very big. God, this is awful.

Do they know this for sure? I just woke up so sorry if this is common knowledge.

Very sad. This isn't terribly far from where I live. I pass through West when I drive to Dallas.

I sort of figured a list of possible suspects with grainy pictures posted on those sites would be a joke (not saying the most tasteful of jokes, but this is 4chan and reddit) "zomg everybody panic, check out all these dark-skinned men wearing backpacks! They are all so suspicious!" When you can't trust actual news media to report true updates vs any most likely made-up bits of anonymous information from nameless sources in undisclosed locations, who is going to reddit and 4chan for reliable news?

The expression "don't believe everything you read" is old as shit for a reason. Why would you be more likely to believe something just because it's been printed?

So the two in the pictures I posted that were described by CNN and other news outlets last night?

The NY Post decided to run with it and post it on the front cover.

And the kid in the blue jacket is a high school track athlete.

So I feel like a douche. Those at the Post must feel awful... Ha, I kid. They're probably just fine.

Bush Gore election night is still the peek of news station idiocy.
