Boom!!

What a week it's been we had this HUGE! explosion at work not real sure at this point but somewhere between 24-50 thousand pounds of small arms powder blew yeah it was BIG! We had it stored in shipping containers. Not sure at this point what caused the explosion. The FBI, ATF, DOD, Homeland Security is all over the place tho so it's crazy for sure! Just thank god no one was around at the time and no one was hurt!

That kind of blast musta rattle some sphincters

I used to be Fielda Artillery in the Army, and a few pounds of powder makes one hell of a BOOM.... I can only imagine what kind of noise that one you experienced made... Glad no one was hurt though, thanks goodness for that.
