When I saw your post I started searching but there wasn't anything yet.

Started to call one of my sisters that live there but the Ch 2 bit pretty much sums it up. Wow, sounds like a big one!

BTW, I was there for the wek of Thanksgiving and in tht short amount of time, I got tired of all the hoopla around "Radar" and what sex baby Sachse is going to be!! Geesh, are they streching for ratings or what! LOL

We are building a school in Missouri City 2 miles from the explosion, I was phoned about 2 min after it happened. They said the explosion disturbed our project but nothing major...Been on all 4 major TV channels with continous coverage since it happened....News reports no fatalities and no serious injuries. 130+ firefighters on the scene. 2 railroad tank cars exploded and many more pressurized tanks are on site.
