It's really bad. I had a friend with family in the area. Her aunt lives 5 miles from the plant and it knocked out her sliding glass door and blew her wooden door off. There were several homes, apartments, nursing home, all leveled near by...Tons and tons are of homes and businesses are severly damaged.
There are missing firemen and policeman that were working the fire when the explosion went off. Last I heard 15 confirmed dead but they have not found all the missing. Tons of search and rescue teams are working right now.
This is a very small community. Town is around 2500 people. Most people that travel this stretch of I-35 know the town because of the bakery right off the interestate.
Please keep this community in your thoughts and prayers.
