A massive explosion at the West Fertilizer Co. Wednesday night rocked a small town just north of Waco, Texas. There are reports of multiple fatalities and hundreds of injuries. The explosion resulted in a massive fire and registered as a 2.1 magnitude seismic event, with people 45 minutes away claiming to have felt the explosion. About half the small town of just 3,000 people was evacuated amid concerns of toxic fumes spreading into the air.

Kate McGee, a reporter for KUT, was at the scene all night.
