State of Emergency Declared in Texas
Federal assistance will hopefully ease the recovery efforts in West Texas.
The death toll at a fertilizer plant rose to 14 on Friday, two days after a massive fire and explosion.
Answering president Obama's declaration of a state emergency, FEMA says federal disaster assistance is now available to Texas.
The explosion damaged not only the plant but nearby homes also.
The blast even registered as a 2.1 magnitude earthquake.
Some people in the small town of 2,800 are now staying with friends or in hotels after their homes were damaged or destroyed.
