This week has just been horrifying, what with the Boston bombings and the Texas fertilizer plant explosion.
It was announced today that twelve bodies have been recovered from the West, Texas blast site. Sgt. Jason Reyes said that while 200 people have been injured and 50 homes destroyed, the terrible incident is “still being treated as a crime scene.”
While the reason behind the fertilizer plant’s fire and subsequent explosion on Wednesday is still unknown, so is the exact amount of damage done. And though many are still unaccounted for, we do know that five West firefighters, one Dallas firefighter, and four emergency responders were killed.
So sad. Our thoughts are with all in West, Texas.
