The small town just north of Waco on IH-35 known mostly for its kolaches may be known for something else tonight, as reports are coming in from twitter that an explosion has taken place at a fertilizer plant there. Damage estimates so far can only be characterized as catastrophic.
In just a few short hours, Baylor and Waco will welcome numerous dignitaries, including President Barack Obama, to campus for the memorial services in the Ferrell Center. How we as a community act will speak volumes. Be excellent.
