There were footage from the scene of the explosion in the capital of Spain

47

From the Spanish capital, urgent reports come in about a powerful explosion in one of the neighborhoods. According to eyewitnesses, the explosion was of such force that fragments of concrete, fragments of roofing, metal fittings and shards of glass covered several hundred meters of a street in Madrid.


On the footage that is coming from the capital of Spain at this moment, you can see the consequences of the explosion. At the same time, Spanish law enforcement officers have not yet reported what caused the explosion.

According to the latest information, the epicenter of the explosion was the Calle de Toledo quarter. The footage shows damaged buildings, cars, trash cans. The quarter is cordoned off by the police.

In the first video, you can see the building on the left. Apparently, the explosion thundered in it or in the immediate vicinity of it. It was this building that received the most damage.


Rescue personnel:


According to some reports, we are talking about an explosion on the upper floors of a residential apartment building, which is located near the church and the nursing home. Frames from a different angle:

      The only comfort is that the Spaniards will not blame Russia - they have enough of their own Basques there. Although, the version of "Russian special services" not from Spain, but from certain types from Washington can be expected.

          The main version is a household gas explosion. Remember, we had this. The reason is the deterioration of networks and insufficient control of specialized services.
          But now we have in Len. oblasts annually go and check for leaks with a mark in a special book.
          But now new buildings are running purely on electricity, without gas supply.

      Build versions early. However, it is no longer so important what exploded. There will be an investigation, conclusions. For domestic needs, gas there is not too widespread, it is expensive.

        The rupture of the cylinder itself is not very dangerous, but the explosion of the gas-air mixture .... "Volumetric" explosions are very dangerous.

      There is not a pipe and not even a cylinder - the gas tank should have shied away. I saw that it happens from a 50-liter bottle. 300-400 grams of TNT. And then there is cho ... Or the Basques have seriously ruined, or something much more serious than a balloon.

            I have never said that there can be no gas in a cylinder, do not fantasize.

            This is a domestic gas explosion in Magnitogorsk in December 2018. Not balloon.

              The article says "several hundred meters" the debris flew away. And in Magnitogorsk, the pipe burst. I don't know ... I'm not there. Let's see what the investigation shows. But I, for some reason, support the Basque version. It would be very attractive to many - from Washington to Brussels.

                the pipe will not burst even if set on fire
                a tie-in into a gas pipeline is made directly under pressure
                there must be an air mixture for the explosion.

                  The working tube will not burst under pressure. In the assembly booth himself, he frightened the masons with a torch, opening a full propane tank and igniting the propane at the reducer fitting.
                  And it was turned off, and if it was still "checked" whether there was gas there or not (they opened the valves) and let the air in - easily. I myself saw the consequences of the explosion of the 533rd pipe, which was not steamed and they tried to make a tie-in. It was six meters from the closed valve to the hydraulic fracturing (semi-disassembled, with open valves - "the gas was vented"). It became easier to build a new hydraulic fracturing than to restore this one.

      Yes, it looks like there was a leak for some time, several rooms were filled with gas. Then - a spark and a volumetric explosion.

      The most likely version is stupid non-compliance with safety and gas handling. Someone turned on the burner on a small fire and fell asleep, and take it and go out.

    The explosion is certainly strong, but we draw your attention to the fact that the supporting structures of the building were not damaged. (At least in the photo there are no structural destructions.) Only the facade walls and interior partitions were destroyed, which is a common occurrence in an explosion of household gas. The building was saved from destruction by the fact that this is a monolithic reinforced concrete structure. explosives on the first floor. And they would place a charge next to the supporting column to completely destroy the structure.

    According to the latest information, three were killed, eleven were wounded. The main version is a gas leak. As I understand it, there was a gas mini-boiler room in the house, in which some work was being carried out.

    Judging by the street covered with shrapnel, the explosion was really powerful. And then questions arise in comparison: What are we doing wrong, that in our country, as a rule, a gas explosion leads to the collapse of a building, but in Spain there is no collapse of a building?

      It's about the design of the building .. You must have paid attention to which buildings collapse when a domestic gas explosion in the post-Soviet space? These are panel buildings and buildings with a combined design ... But I have never come across destroyed buildings of monolithic design.
      And most of the buildings in the post-Soviet space, objectively speaking, are already considered old and worn out in all respects. Most of the buildings are 50-70 years old ... So all this is not surprising hi
