Seriously.

The OK city bombing was 2 tons of fertilizer (with fuel oil). This was 2,700 tons.

They "forgot" it was there. Sheesh.

Most of harbors has International Maritime Dangerous Goods standart for Explosive material warehouse. This is also calling as SOLAS (Safety of the Life at Sea) or MARPOL (International Convention for the Prevention of pollution from Ships) . According to news big balast cause by ammonium nitrate explose which is waiting in this wearhouse over 6 years. First fire looks like starting from Fireworks. You may see in one ofe video fireworks sparking everywhere. I think Harbor Fire Dep loose control with Fire works and sparking jump to side warehouse with ammonium nitrate. Humidty and wheather effect with long period storage with ammonium nitrate may cause more dangerous and more explosive.

Without any conspiracy theory or stupied Twitter trolling. It show us, such a dangerous chemicals and material must be not storge in city or near the populations.

Horrific is indeed the only word I can think of to describe that. Thoughts and prayers to those directly effected.
