So, you're saying NOT just a couple M-80's?!Not gonna lie, that shock wave was gorgeous.
Unofficial word from amongst my tribe is that there was a boat with fireworks on board. There’s one video out there where you can see it cooking off. On my phone, I was quite skeptical of that, but on a different screen I could see it better.
Anyway, that boat caught on fire. Not good. That right there is already what I’d call a bad fucking day. That boat just happened to be located right next to a warehouse where a fuckton of confiscated chemicals and explosives (sodium nitrate and possibly AN) were kept for a couple of years ( let that sink in for a second...)
The grain silo @medicchick references is right beside that warehouse,, but I digress.
So yeah, fireworks on fire get fucking hot as balls. That shit also gets verrrrrrrry touchy. Word from witnesses was that there was a smaller det before that big motherfucker. That would be the fireworks. Heat, shock and friction were adequately applied to that warehouse chock full of really touchy shit as a result. The end result is Exhibit A.
You mean the bomb that killed their PM in '05?
Yeah, I got a giggle watching that shock wave. "Annd I think I'm going to find overhead cover now..."
I buy the storage for years in the same spot solely because how else are you going to make sure your local terrorist organization has a supply point with plausible deniability?
@racing_kitty How much do you think the grain silo contributed? I don't think there was enough there to get the expected correct ratio for a powder puff, but it's not like less isn't going to work, unlike if you stray in the other direction.
