The Shockwave alone must have been equivalent to a high yield nuclear warhead.
Texans sure love their explosions, one guy detonated his excess fertilizer a year or two ago in his back yard, and it caused such a shockwave that it fooled the local earthquake monitor into thinking a huge earthquake happened. Also he was picked up by the homeland security as a terrorist attempt. Yeah.
as you all know, how much American gov want to whip out NK, & united Korea as one...
as for Iran, the only reason I can find is that OIL.. ( just like Iraqi ) no offence to the 9/11 victim...
No, PEPCON was bigger and is equally as bad a place to have a fire start, if not worse. (PEPCON was several KILOtons. Nuclear weapons are in the order of MEGAtons)
PEPCON had 10.5 million pounds of ammonium perchlorate (or AP) stored in one location, in open containers. AP is a main component in solid rocket fuel. By itself, it is harmless, but contaminate it, and/or give it an ignition source, and you're looking at something that is by weight, 55% O2, the air we breathe is by weight, 29% O2. So that should give you an idea how well it burns.
So, that got going, that then started using itself as fuel, and the aluminum bins and poly barrels provided the two other components found in SRBs (solid rocket boosters), rubber and aluminium.
When that got to exploding, it got to exploding with a 3.5 on the Richter scale, the earlier explosions at PEPCON measured a 3 on the same scale and when all was said and done, it left a crater fifteen feet deep.
Lesson learned? Don't store so much potentially explosive stuff in one place. I just hope the fertilizer industry changes its own procedures after this.
I'm still waiting for an explanation on why the professionally trained sniffer dogs were reacting to explosives and no necessary actions were taken to evacuate people.
Do you have any evidence of that, other than what the track coach said? Surely more people must have heard it, no?
I seen footage of multiple bystanders talking about it, supposedly minutes after it happened. If you want to see it im sure it would be onlime by now, but having said all of this i still consider all theories rather than be in the mindstate that i am right and everyone else is wrong.
