That guy in Reseda

According to the engineer on the ground- the explosion was from 2200 pounds of Propane and 80 (or 800, it was loud and I was wearing high-noise headphones) pounds of accelerant. And they used less than they planned. And they already moved the perimeter back to 700 feet from 500 feet the night before. Breathtaking...

Thanks for that added information! As we sat in the front row, we were somewhat wondering 'if this hasn't been done before, how safe is it to be in the front row?' ;)... I'm glad to hear they moved the perimeter back as well, as the heat from that explosion was intense even at 700ft out!
