This thread is uninteresting without video.
China controls a lot of things, but fireworks is not one of them.
Was in a smaller Chinese city once during the Lunar New Year - and the sounds were that of a war zone. Fireworks could be had everywhere - was great fun, actually.
I am certainly no construction engineer but in viewing the video of the scene that Hillary’s Gate Cult posted above, it appears that the use of re-bar in the concrete construction was really skimped upon (around the 1:55 mark in the video) Others more knowledgeable should comment on this though.
Unlikely that the truck load of fireworks would all together or mostly explode simultaneously ?
Do the Chinese use H.E. for their fireworks?
If you want to move something big and heavy with explosives it needs to be backed with earth or sand bags....or use massive amounts of HE.
This story has a lot of 0bama in it.
The truck blew up and the bridge went down but not in that order.
The Chinese are quite involved in building the new Bay Bridge in San Francisco, I believe. Anybody want to be in the first car to cross when it opens?
Hold ma beer and watch this!
Did anyone else notice the phenomenal air pollution shown in that video?
