DIFF 2015: THE DAY WEST SHOOK TEXAS Roundtable Interview

West, TX is a tiny town about 18 miles north of Waco well-known amongst Texans for its baked goods. But on Wednesday, April 17th, 2013, West earned more of a certain international fame when it was rocked by the explosion of a fertilizer storage plant. While an accident of this magnitude is often only the beginning of the devastation, West stands as an example of how a truly close-knit community reacts in the face of tragedy. Informative eyewitness and first responder accounts illustrate how the citizens banded together on that day and continue to rebuild – both physically and in spirit.
