Seen we are hearing from and Natalie soul -- I believe she's with our fox affiliate KDFW.
And Natalie can you hear me are you with us this evening at a record like Harry.
A -- why he had to bring us up to speed talents that tell us what's going on we're looking at these pictures and it's it's really it's unfathomable what we're looking -- Yeah -- it is out completely chaos here on the ground.
I -- much attention right -- -- just behind any of baseball field -- got it where they are bringing people.
I bet that aren't seriously injured -- right in front and that is the communities that are.
And got one of the places where they are taking of people that need to be treated they are also taking some of the injured two -- the FW.
I heard you mention the sport -- first responders I can help you at that there are first responders and law enforcement.
Here from all over the place guy has seen sheriff's department.
Police officer -- fire -- All different -- -- and I stayed amateur and quite frankly cat Larry could -- above.
Or that area but they are -- here and they're all such as -- and -- -- It's K a -- one of the biggest -- it is just trying to coordinate and organize everybody is here to help and carry it a lot -- need to be got.
I'm looking -- now.
That's biggest -- 6:8 o'clock tonight this is -- the explosion and I correct that's -- the explosion occurred at 8 PM tonight tells look at what happened we know.
-- my understanding is that the airplay is a a buyer that would that but at this start a -- there.
Combat pay and and they I had purchased under -- aren't you got fire.
And -- a little bit later on an even -- it rekindled and then that is -- black cap and and I like change from -- that fire initially update to the blast I I'm really not sure.
Skin that Blackstone it hit -- all about trying -- side -- the you know put out fires treat injured noticed -- is the exact I'm sure that'll be something -- -- -- later.
OK and I know with any breaking news situation the other pretty high -- and possibly excuse -- injury and possibly death sold do you have any information that that you can confirm with us about that.
IA I have heard.
Speech he is that it possibly it is that -- -- -- -- sound like a pretty high number but judging by.
What I see here on the ground it it certainly is inconceivable.
That that app might be the case and as well as or others injured because again right -- the focus is trying to get those people the help they need.
And you know part of that he ought to eat spam is trying to -- it's -- -- -- -- wind.
And it and figure out are they among the injured which location -- they might they be treated -- So it's a lot going nine and Andy acts they're bigger numbers that.
-- -- devastating especially for -- day.
Note right we'll keep that we'll keep in my -- viewers at home that that is the number that we are working to confirm that at this at this moment with all this going on we cannot.
Confirmed that is the exact number but I want -- -- to give our viewers sort of set the scene -- -- like you said it's a small community and we're hearing really.
And back at her one authorities say it looked like old war zone are are all -- in their damage to surrounding buildings were hearing that there's -- which have collapsed skinny sort of set the scene -- and tell us what you're seeing on the ground.
Right okay well I can tell you we are about twenty miles north of Waco and we -- got came down interstate.
On the net and and you know we can't it was already dark so what we're seeing right now -- is a lot of flashing light and by the time -- got here.
All the -- -- that day where you know they're stopping everybody every intersection trying to direct everybody trying to move everybody away from.
Areas where the how -- were on fire but it.
Hearing that same exact thing that I'm home and get caught fire that there is a nursing home.
That I had without.
Caught fire that damaged in that -- -- has in people trapped there.
School that also caught fire.
So yup thank you all around and I heard it and think about it being described as a war I've talked to other people here on the skiing Tuesday.
-- -- -- and -- those -- and bad how bad it it applies now we have not been able to get to those -- because began acting directing at the way that we.
Get they were able to come to the area where they are bringing a lot of people to try to get the treatment.
-- -- you were talking about that triage center which our viewers were able to get a look at earlier in our conversation aside from the triage center where people are.
Are getting treated for or perhaps injuries that aren't aren't deadly.
Are there hospitals nearby do you have any indication of how many people.
Had been taken to the hospital are ready and are they still being taken to the hospital right now I mean it's.
It's past midnight and this happened at 8 PM.
Yeah I app I got -- number it's really -- just say.
And and part of the -- again is because there are so many first responders here I have seen.
The -- -- ambulances coming and going.
I -- hard to tell exactly where they're taking these people are they taking them directly to hospitals are they taking it to another location.
Been very fluid on the ground that they mentioned the court they were treating people in one location they had that that application and they move it even that yet.
So where they're kicking people in bit unclear but I know that a lot of people have taken to area hospitals like to Waco and other.
I'm local medical disabilities act -- be treated and then you know there are the ones here that are still getting treatment for example -- Communities that are active -- they're doing about it at.
You know that they have -- Do you know of anyone any victims have been like flight did Wear their helicopters he is -- kinda what kind of first responders were on scene.
I I -- I would -- I would almost certain -- that people have been my flight out.
When we arrived it we get it was dark that you could certainly.
Here all the helicopters overhead.
Could keep them out -- light and I'm sure that was a combination and -- first responders.
I -- I would have to match it at a level of devastation absolutely people had to be choppered out.
