Then the video footages of the tornadoes started coming in… and now as I type this, there is at least one battery tank explosion and gas well on fire from lightening in Denton-home of the reversed fracking ban via paid for Texas Congress by the fracker industry. Contact Gub’ner Abbott and ask him not to sign HB40.

Thanks to TX Sharon for sourcing these two videos

Further down on the DFW FB Scanner, comments are found of another tank battery fire reported in north Grayson TX which is by Lake Texoma…

“SADLER, TX – Firefighters extinguished an oil tank battery on fire north of Whitesboro early Friday morning after they were unable to access it last night due to flooding.

It happened near Sandusky and Scarbrough Roads north of Whitesboro.”

The problem with this Whitesboro fire is that two different news agencies disagree on how fast the fire department could put the fire out…kxii said it was ten minutes after they could get to it which ws the next morning due to flood waters and kten said in their video coverage that they put the fire out in about an hour amid heavy rain and lightening.

Below is the twitter news feed local media screen shots on the Denton tank battery fire…

The above pics with homes in the forefront…lovely. Vantage Energy, who relied on emergency services and had to travel from Houston, said the public was never in any danger. Denton’s Councilman Roden tweeted in response to the 7 hr delay from the driller being based in Houston about (failed) Texas Regulation.


The day before, May 6 2015, a tank fire occurred from a lightening strike in Deanville TX about 25 miles sw of College Station.

Then an hour after we bid May 7 good-bye… flood waters caused a train derailment-lucky it wasn’t a crude carrying load!

Thanks HB40 for a drill any and everywhere near people mandate…..this is our new NORM?…I mean TENORM!

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
