Dozens feared dead in Texas explosion

Good Thursday morning from MSNewsNow's Brandon Artiles.

While the day is off to a peaceful 71 degree start our meteorologists have their eyes on the sky for what could be a rough day ahead, going into Friday. Paul Williams will let us know what we could face in his First Alert Forecast.  

Happening now, scores of emergency personnel are still on site in Texas City were a fertilizer plant explosion has potentially killed dozens of people and injured hundreds. We'll bring you the very latest in a live report from Texas.

Also today, we'll learn more about the Mississippi man that federal investigators pegged as the person who sent the President and Senator Roger Wicker letters with a deadly toxin in them.

Plus, we'll find out if investigators are any closer to zeroing-in on the person/or people responsible for the Boston Marathon bombings.

All those stories and much more are headed your way at the top of the hour.

Please join us from 5 to 7 and for more Mississippi News Now, you can check us out on Fox 40 from 7 to 9.

Have a great Friday eve!
