KWTX in Waco appears to have the latest in coverage from the explosion, so check back there periodically. WFAA in Dallas also has details about the blast and the response in Central Texas. Eddie Middlebrook, someone I follow on twitter that lives in Waco, tweeted that his mother went into West to find his aunt and reported that parts of the town are "leveled." I've since seen that in other places, too.

I'm not a journalist by any means-- I'm a sports blogger in my spare time-- but I will try to update this thread as much as possible since this explosion is so close to Waco and Baylor. I'm sure people in Waco felt the concussion; there's almost no way they didn't.
