Thanks here to the Daily Beast and the BBC:
ONLY from today we have a spontaneous ammunition depot detonation, the big bang on the order of a minor tactical nuclear weapon, the results horrendous.
"Huge Blast at Arms Dump in Congo"
"A munitions dump in the Congo’s capital, Brazzaville, exploded Sunday, and the huge blast killed at least 200 people . . . Some 1,500 people could be injured, many of them seriously. The explosion may have been caused by a fire in the arms depot, according to the country’s defense minister."
Explosions of this type during war time not uncommon, but much less so during peace time. It is not clear if this disaster in the Congo is the result on single 'big bang" or a series of explosions. And too for a nation such as the Congo poverty stricken as it I find it peculiar that so much dangerous and in quantity explosive ordnance would be gathered in just one place
Munitions ships while at anchorage during both the Great War [WW1] and the Second World War [WW2] spontaneously detonating with catastrophic results in all cases the same as if a tactical nuclear weapon had gone off the presence of that mushroom cloud of major proportions indicating a big bang of monumental scale: 1, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, WW1. 2. The USS Mt. Hood, South Pacific, WW2. 3. Robert Rowan, Gela, Sicily, Italy WW2.
Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, the WW1 munitions ship Mt. Blanc detonation producing the largest man-made explosion prior to the atomic bombs as dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The Port Chicago disaster occurring as it did during hours of darkness so only images of the aftermath as horrific as they are exist? This seems to be so.
