Texas officials on fertilizer plant explosion: Nothing to see here

05/03/13 03:05PM

Two weeks after a fertilizer plant explosion killed 14 and left hundreds more homeless or wounded in West, Texas, local officials investigating its cause are holding back on directing blame for the disaster. On Wednesday, the Texas House Committee on Homeland Security and Public Safety held a hearing to determine what regulations and safety procedures are in place to prevent similar catastrophes—and why they didn't prevent this one.

A teenage girl could face up to five years in prison for "discharging weapons or firerarms" on the grounds of Bartow High School in the town of Bartow, Florida. Kiera Wilmot, 16, was arrested by local police and taken into custody after causing a small explosion on campus. There were no deaths, and no injuries.

That's because the "weapon" Wilmot detonated was a mixture of toilet bowl cleaner and aluminum foil, which she mixed together in the bottle as part of an apparent amateur science project. read more
