T-storms, temps falling at plant explosion site

WEST, Texas (AP) - A weather front is bringing cooler temperatures and thunderstorms into West, where authorities are still searching for survivors of a massive fertilizer plant explosion.

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth says thunderstorms are expected to affect West until about 9 a.m., though lightning should become less frequent gradually.

Temperatures are dropping into the low 50s.

A line of storms was affecting much of North and Central Texas along Interstate 35 Thursday morning. NWS issued a flood advisory until 8 a.m. for Dallas County, which was being hit by thunderstorms.
