Photo of the Day

In this Thursday, April 18, 2013 photo, emergency personnel investigate the scene of several homes destroyed by an explosion at the West Fertilzer Co. in West, Texas. Rescuers searched the smoking remnants for survivors of Wednesday night's thunderous fertilizer plant explosion, gingerly checking smashed houses and apartments for anyone still trapped in debris while the community awaited word on the number of dead. Initial reports put the fatalities as high as 15, but later in the day, authorities backed away from any estimate and refused to elaborate. More than 160 people were hurt.  (AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez)
