This April 18, 2013, aerial photo shows a destroyed West Fertilizer Co. plant, top, following an explosion in West, Texas. The Federal Emergency Management Agency is refusing to provide money to help rebuild West, the small Texas town where a deadly fertilizer plant explosion leveled numerous homes and a school, and killed 15 people. According to a letter obtained by The Associated Press, FEMA said it reviewed the state's appeal to help West but decided that the explosion "is not of the severity and magnitude that warrants a major disaster declaration." FEMA has, however, provided emergency funds to individual residents. (AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez) less
