As if it isn't horrendous enough...

These poor people. A bus on its way from Houston to Dallas has exploded. Apparently there was a spark from the brakes that caused the gas tank to blow. The bus was carrying elderly evacuees and they think that the oxygen tanks may have caused more explosions.

Less than half of the passengers have been accounted for. They believe there may be as many as 20 dead. Will update as more info is given. See Fox News

There are at least 24 people killed in that bus explosion. The fire was caused by a brake spark and overheated bus. Once on fire, the elderly patients' oxygen tanks began to blow as well. So very tragic. They were trying to reach safety.
