    At first when I read about it my mind couldn't comprehend 2700 TONS of Ammonium Nitrate. 2700 pounds seemed more real but the more I read and heard it was tons!!!

    Sounds like it was a seized shipment that just sat there for a few years. Ticking time bomb in a metropolitan area like that.
    When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail." ----- Jack Burton 1986

    The news said it was an estimated 2,750 metric tons from a confiscated shipment about 6 years ago.
    There appeared to be a fire (the gray column of smoke) before the "white flash" explosion. That white flash may have been the vaporized water of the bay because of the speed with which the white cloud disappeared.
    There was one picture I saw that shows the water-filled crater that resulted from this blast.

    Note the ships still docked just feet from the blast center.

    That looks like night vision or IR.

    It looks like a filter on the video we already saw which makes me pretty confident that it is edited

    It's just negative. Why anyone would invert the image colors and brightness is beyond me.

    You CAN, however, see what looks like a missile hitting the area when it explodes.

    Being in his car is probably the reason that person is still alive.

    That was established to be A FAKE. People took the original footage. Made it NEGATIVE, like in the 'missile footage' and went frame by frame. There is NO MISSILE in the original footage. Just another Hoax.
