Major Disaster Declared in Texas, S. Dakota

Posted by feww on August 5, 2013

WH Signs Texas Disaster Declaration

The White House has declared a major disaster exists in the State of Texas  in the area affected by an explosion during the period of April 17-20, 2013.

A deadly blast rocked the West Fertilizer Plant in the small town of West north of Waco, Texas at about 7.50pm local time  on Wednesday, April 17.

The blast was recorded as a 2.1 magnitude quake by USGS/EHP, which said, “the magnitude measures only the ground motion, not the air wave, so is substantially less than the true size of the event.”

“The West plant is one of thousands of sites across rural America that store and sell hazardous materials such as chemicals and fertilizer for agricultural use, many within close range of residences and schools,” said a report.


WH Signs South Dakota Disaster Declaration

The Whit House has declared a major disaster exists in the State of South Dakota in the areas affected by severe storms, tornadoes, and flooding during the period of June 19-29, 2013.

Areas worst damaged by the severe storms, tornadoes, and flooding  were the counties of Beadle, Codington, Deuel, Grant, Hamlin, Hughes, and Kingsbury.
