Derek Hurt was driving with his daughter when he drove past the fire at the local fertilizer plant in West, Texas. He pulled his car over to video the enormous fire, and as he was filming the explosion occurred. The video reveals the enormity of the blast. It also reveals how frightening it was to this little family who witnessed it. Matt Lauer interviewed the Hurt’s this morning, and you can watch it above. The video that Derek recorded is below.
As you can see from the blast, the casualty numbers are bound to increase. Pray for the people of West, Texas.
