It felt ‘like a bomb went off’, those who saw the deadly Texas explosion ripping through a fertilizer plant say. A video taken by a father several meters from the scene captures his child screaming ‘Daddy, please get out of here, I can’t hear!’
The blast injured over 172 people; dozens are feared dead. The explosion leveled local residents’ homes, shaking doors and sending shockwaves across the community.
"It was like a nuclear bomb went off," a man who was looking for a lost relative on Willie Nelson Road told KVUE.
"There was a huge shock wave," said Mark Licknovsky, who works at the Czech Stop less than one mile away, told the station.
“I don’t know exactly what happened. I just know once Joyce and I got down there… we were on the corner of the nursing home – I jumped out and started….and went to that store, and people were just saying ‘What can we do?’ It was just like, ‘I don’t know!’ But we started pulling them [out] and they started getting people in there to help and they ran down that hall, which was totally blown up…oh God…,” a survivor of the disaster shared her experience with RT.
"That’s when we knew something was serious." Local resident Keith Williams said his house was completely destroyed.
"All the ceilings are out. The windows are out. The brick’s knocked off the house. My big garage out back is half blowed in," Williams told ABC News Radio.
