Better video, I think they got their eardrums blownout.


Forget eardrums, I think I would have died of a heart attack if I witnessed that. That guy shouldn't have bothered filming that. I hope his daughter's ears are going to be okay, poor child.


Damn that was crazy, it looked like a fireball headed straight to the truck. I bet mamma is going to be very upset, haha.


But anytime you have a fire in a fertilizer or grain plant, you know it's going to be volatile and dangerous.

I'm not one for accusations, but, this one's cast iron.

Forgive my ignorance, but is that permanent? That poor kid. The dad couldn't even hear how distressed she was.


I'm pretty sure a ruptured eardrum can heal and your hearing will return eventually.


Basically. Though, it's likely the girl will have tinnitus for the rest of her life after it heals.

Only way she'd go permanently deaf is if it broke the incus, mallus, or stapes or ruptured the round or oval windows.

Holy ****, that explosion. Along with the death and destruction, I imagine the psychological damage of this is going to be pretty bad. With the recent bombing in Boston, seeing that explosion must be really ****ing scary before knowing why it happened.

Just so you guys know, the explosion wasn't IN Waco. It was in West, Texas which is like... 10 to 15 miles north. Not even the same zip code. It was in the town where the Czech Stop and all the little Czech bakeries are.
