West, Texas: A Victim of Tragedy

West, Texas Fertilizer Plant Explosion

It is a tragedy to learn of the fertilizer plant explosion that occurred on Wednesday night, April 17, 2013 in West, Texas. As of today, according to CNN.com, as many as 35 people were killed and many more injured. Evacuations occurred and many houses were destroyed. It has been known that several medical emergency personnel who arrived on the scene to help those still in the area, were injured or killed, as well.

The cause of the explosion is still unknown and the effects of this tragedy may take a while before any stability is placed back in this town. This is a result of the amount of chemicals that may have been released, known as anhydrous ammonia, which is used to make fertilizer and can be dangerous if mixed with high concentrations of water.

The devastating effects of the explosion in West, Texas will no doubt be the talk of the town for a long time to come, and this is something that hopefully can be prevented in the future. As of today, there is no cause of the explosion; however, until the cause is known, I believe that the minds of the residents will cease to be at peace.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of this explosion and all of those affected and hopefully something as tragic as this will not happen again. As a resident of Texas, it is devastating to learn that this occurred. Nonetheless, I hope for a recovery of the town as well as to those affected by this tragedy.
