Next Thursday marks one year since the deadly fertilizer plant explosion rocked the town of West.
The blast killed 15 people. More than 160 were hurt. Dozens of homes were destroyed or damaged. The tragedy touched everyone in this small town – somehow.
In the last year, we’ve followed the people of West as they began to rebuild their lives.
In a special, hour-long documentary “Rise Up West,” you’ll see how the recovery started on the 50-yard line.
News 8’s David Schechter takes us behind the scenes.
