    Don't know if they are from West, TX or West Texas. Google Earth shows about 4 pools within the area of the blast.

    This is West, TX (near Waco witch is actually more considered North Texas). Not sure if we have any members between Waco and Dallas areas, but prayers go up to all the families involved in this incident.

    I found a post from them on another forum where they give their location as Western TX.

    City of West, TX.

    Definitely very sad. I've stopped at the Czech Stop numerous times. It was good to see the response that they got there on such a short notice too. There are benefits to having a major interstate run through your town, along with a large, metropolitan area only 60 miles to the north. They had help there really quickly. That will no doubt improve chances of survival.
