See how fast the Texas blast's shock waves traveled

Authorities are releasing more information on the blast in Texas, where a chemical plant caught fire and turned into a giant bomb. The blast and ball of fire were so strong that it shook the ground with the strength of a small earthquake, and blew out doors and windows several miles away. The scope of the damage is hard to get your head around.

Tom Foreman is in the virtual studio with a look at how widespread it is.
