The factory of West Fertilizer Co exploded inside a township of 2800 people 80 miles south of Dallas. “It was like a nuclear bomb”, reports Euronews.
An explosion tore through a fertilizer plant and leveled dozens of homes in a small Texas town late on Wednesday, killing a number of people, injuring more than 160 and spewing toxic fumes that forced the evacuation of half the community.
Officials declined to say how many people died in the explosion in the town of West but said they expected to find more bodies as search teams combed through the rubble of the plant and surrounding homes.
“I’ve never seen anything like this,” McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara said. “It looks like a war zone with all the debris.”
The blast, triggered by a fire at the West Fertilizer Co. plant, was reported at about 8 p.m. CDT (0100 GMT on Thursday) in West, a town of about 2,800 people about 80 miles south of Dallas and 20 miles north of Waco.
As a Christian, I regret lose of life of innocent people. Either in Boston, Bagdad or West in Texas.
But unfortunately, people are going to face the heat and perish. In their hundreds of millions. This age is called the Great Tribulation, a divine age of judgment.
Isaiah 34:2The Lord is angry with all nations; his wrath is on all their armies. He will totally destroy them, he will give them over to slaughter.
The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.
The reason for this judgment is that the human race has rejected the blood of Jesus, and rather made Satan their God. The penalty for such foolishness, is eternity in the burring fire of Hell. Before the lost souls eventually have to spend the eternal furnace, there will also be suffering on Earth. God of the Bible will pour out His wrath on all flesh.
Only those who have surrender to Jesus the Messiah, and accepted to be under His Lordship, will escape this age.
Be wise. Learn from the misery we all can see in the media, and repent. Beg Jesus for Mercy, and offer your life to Him. Surrender to Him today, and He will save you. Amen.
