Video shows oil tank explosion near Daisetta

A column of smoke towered above Daisetta, eastern Texas, on January 29, after several oil tanks exploded, prompting authorities to order nearby residents to shelter in place temporarily.

This footage was taken by Travis Yust,  who was heading to inspect his tanks when one of them blew up, soon followed by the rest. Yust wrote: “I was about 100 feet away from them, headed back to them when the first one blew. One more minute and I wouldn’t be here typing this.”
