    Man the explosion was epic, i watched a few home videos, it looked like about 1km away, the cameras were just about blown out of their hands, the boom was sonic stuff, the explosion travelled faster than the boom, thoughts to the brave fire men that were trying to put it out at the time, heavy stuff.
    Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....

    When hearing about the explosion, I thought about the Henderson Nevada explosion a few years ago.

    I live in Henderson, right down the road from BMI and where Pep-Con used to be.

    it was 15 miles north of me. i was sitting on my porch drinking a fruit smoothie when it happened and i both heard and felt it. we can hear/feel when L3 does rocket booster test burns as well but this was too short for it to have been that so i figured it was just thunder.

    as far as the aftermath.... let's just say the hospital was a chaotic mad house today with all the wounded and media; and some of the injuries i dealt with (especially the elderly) were absolutely beyond belief/description. it was an especially long 12 hours on the unit today.

    the explosion is at at 0:30. rubble can be heard pelting the vehicle after the blast, which is astounding given the distance they were from the plant.
