Dallas explosions

This is a couple of days old, but I just now found a decent YouTube video of the footage. This happened on Wednesday at a gas plant near downtown Dallas, about half an hour from where I live. Some gas tanks were sent flying over half a mile and a few even landed on the interstate nearby. Luckily only one person was killed, which is pretty amazing considering the size of the blast and that people were working there at the time.

That was pretty incredible, I really liked when the camera man zoomed in on the cars and you could see the smoke being sucked into the fire then shrapnel and smoke getting pushed back when there was an explosion. Very cool video, any idea how it started or what the place was?

The business is called Southwest Industrial Gases, and currently there's an investigation into the exact cause. It has been made public that there hasn't been an inspection in the last 5 years. These types of businesses are supposed to be inspected annually. Oops.
