The cover of the Texas City Disaster Fire Prevention Bureau report is a dramatic overlook of what happens when catastrophe strikes.

The report is a lesson in the horrors of disaster. #weareTEXASCITY

We honor those that died on this day in 2001. Their stories echo in history, and hearken back to the stories of those that lost their lives on April 16, 1947 in Texas City.

Below is the cover of the Texas City Disaster report by the fire prevention and engineering bureau of Texas. FASCINATING READ. The lead up to what happened on the incredible cover photo accurately opens a report of unmistakable drama.

This is fascinating. It's the #Grandcamp Stowage Plan from April 16, 1947. The ammonium nitrate was spread out, so the blast covered more ground. The combustible nature of tobacco and cotton didn't help. #weareTEXASCITY

Chemical or petroleum plants, like the Grandcamp and High Flyer, can be very dangerous if elements like fire, water are introduced or a mishap occurs. This incident in Baytown is only 31 miles from Texas City. #weareTEXASCITY https://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Black-smoke-seen-rising-from-Exxon-plant-in-14270030.php?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=socialflow

Monsanto Was Ordered to Pay $2 Billion in a Cancer Lawsuit. There Are 13,000 More Plaintiffs.

The congressional compensation of $17,000,000 last addressed in 1957 pales in comparison to the Monsanto settlement awarded this week - even with adjusted figures. AND even though the Texas city Disaster was the impetus for the first ever (eventually overturned) class action lawsuit.

Dangerous chemical events always bring to mind the TEXAS CITY disaster. Especially when lives are lost. Comparing size and scope does nothing to assuage the sadness of loss. #weareTEXASCITY

Firefighters confronted with the worst Gulf Coast industrial disaster in 14 years had to call on outside sources to augment their supply of the special foam required to extinguish chemical blazes.

Today we honor the Veterans that made the ultimate sacrifice to protect what our country is all about.

Many veterans, including my grandfather Jesse Thames, were in Texas City on April 16, 1947 - and they were integral in heroic efforts to save everyone they could and the town they loved.

Here is a picture of my grandfather in his WWII Army Air Corps uniform. #VeteransDay #weareTEXASCITY
