well the place does seem to have many "similar events" lets take a look shall we:

The resulting blast registered 2.1 on the Richter scale and could be felt in Ennis, Waxahachie and Red Oak.

Among those responding to the blast, which sent up a mushroom-shaped plume of smoke and left behind a crater, were Waxahachie’s

Anyhow dhs was doing "drills" up and around the area right before to "prepare for similar events". see pic of the smoke: http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2011/10/03/fire-explosions-at-waxahachie-chemical-warehouse/

And here is a gas leak: 

By Shelly Conlon and Andrew Branca The Daily Light managing editor and staff writer

A natural gas leak caused an early morning explosion at Liberty Dialysis in Waxahachie off U.S. Highway 77 behind Dickey's Barbecue Pit, said Waxahachie Fire Chief Ricky Boyd at the scene.

“You can see the back wall is basically all blown off, so it was quite an explosion,” Boyd said. “We're very fortunate that nobody was in the back of the building when it happened. I've seen explosions before, and this is pretty big.”

The Waxahachie Fire Department responded to the call at 6:15 a.m., Boyd said. The explosion caused a small fire and happened in the building's water room, which helps make sure the dialysis process is safe and clean, said nurse manager Cindy Roberts. She received the news at 6:11 a.m. etc

Now after the ^ (last posted above) I remember on either some comments but I think it was some articles out talking about possible having more as they said they have some "gas problems" that need sorted out with the lines.

Here is a picture from a house explosion in Waxahachie, Texas the just occurred.   My question is...Why is there no smoke or fire? I would think an explosion of this magnitude would at least set something on fire. Anyone got any ideas?

 
 

:damned:   At almost dead center there's a blackened spot, like it was burned. But if it just happened, yeah should still be smoking. Meth lab?

Watching the view from above that CGK posted you could see the back of the place blew out pretty intensively (enough to level the fence behind it) About the same pattern as the dialysis clinic Rbear posted:

"A natural gas leak caused an early morning explosion at Liberty Dialysis in Waxahachie off U.S. Highway 77 behind Dickey's Barbecue Pit, said Waxahachie Fire Chief Ricky Boyd at the scene.

“You can see the back wall is basically all blown off, so it was quite an explosion,” Boyd said. “We're very fortunate that nobody was in the back of the building when it happened. I've seen explosions before, and this is pretty big.”

Never been in a natural gas explosion myself, but does seem a little off that both originated in the rear of the building.

Remember, if you smell rotting eggs, GET OUT!! (don't try to boil a few :biggrin:)
