Any thoughts or links to accurate articles?
According to Google, the explosion caused damaged to around 1.2 miles of area. So quite a bit explosion indeed. It is one of the biggest accidental disasters. Can you imagine what the workers must have felt like when they accidentally caused it due to neglect? I could only imagine how bad they had to have felt after that.
Yeah, I thought it was a pretty hefty explosion that rocked the area. People in the town actually felt the explosion to some extent. Can you imagine waking up to something like this? Or even being so close to the explosion? I'd freak out and would for sure evacuate if I had to.
I don't know the definite size of the explosions, but I know it rocked the city and caused a lot of deaths. I don't think it was too massive though, as a lot of the building is still standing. But yeah, i see elsewhere it was mentioned at 1.2 miles of area. That's scary, as that "Bridge of Death" is just 1.2 miles away from Chernobyl. Scary stuff!
