Multiple sources are confirming reports of a massive explosion at a fertilizer plant in the town of West, Texas, near Waco.

The blast occurred around 8:50 PM, Eastern time, and the shockwaves could be felt many miles away, according to witnesses.

Local news stations are reporting mass casualties at the site, and local law enforcement officials are transporting the wounded to hospitals in their patrol cars.

It is not known at this time if the blast is terrorist related, or associated with the events at the Boston Marathon on Monday.
