    Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) on Thursday declared a disaster area and said he planned to request federal funds in response to an explosion at a fertilizer plant in Waco that may have killed as many as 15 people.

    At a press conference, the governor thanked President Barack Obama for calling for offer quick action after Wednesday night’s explosion.

    “Last night was truly a nighmare scenario for that community,” Perry said. “President Obama called from Air Force One as he was en route to Boston… We greatly appreciate his call, and his gracious offer of support, of course, and the quick turnaround of the emergency declaration that will be forthcoming, and his offer of prayers.”

    As a Republican candidate for president in 2012, the Texas governor often railed against federal spending.


    Just think about how Republicans, especially from the south, treated the good folks of New York and New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy.

    They have no problem crawling to the Federal government for aid when they're hit by disasters. That's fine. But don't try to shaft people in New York and New Jersey when they get slammed by hurricanes.

    You liberals have an odd way of showing what dumbasses you are when you fault republicans for asking for something they're entitled to

If it was old construction, current regulations would not apply, however if it was new construction, the town will be sued along with the fertilizer plant.

    Sorry ... I guess the President didn't call you first.

    You do not know a lot about rural Texas do you?

    Another video claims that "Homeland Security" forces were in the vicinity the day before the bombing.

    More video analysis indicating a projectile initiation of disaster

    There are two major classes of incidents resulting in explosions:
    • In the first case, the explosion happens by the mechanism of shock-to-detonation transition. The initiation happens by an explosive charge going off in the mass, by the detonation of a shell thrown into the mass, or by detonation of an explosive mixture in contact with the mass. The examples are Kriewald, Morgan (present-day Sayreville, New Jersey), Oppau andTessenderlo.
    • In the second case, the explosion results from a fire that spreads into the ammonium nitrate itself (Texas City, Brest, Oakdale), or from a mixture of ammonium nitrate with a combustible material during the fire (Repauno, Cherokee, Nadadores). The fire must be confined at least to a degree for successful transition from a fire to an explosion (a phenomenon known as "deflagration-to-detonation transition", or DDT). Pure, compact AN is stable and very difficult to ignite, and there are numerous cases when even impure AN did not explode in a fire.

    A crater from which damage at the plant seems to emanate south of the railcar's location, either next to or atop the railroad siding.
