AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas Gov. Rick Perry is calling the deadly fertilizer plant explosion in his state "a truly nightmare scenario."
Authorities have said as many as 15 people are feared dead and more than 160 others were injured in the explosion that leveled homes and businesses in the farming community of West, Texas.
Perry emphasized during a Thursday morning news conference that much of the information about victims still is "very preliminary."
