In case you haven’t already heard, a massive explosion in Toronto occured Sunday morning at 3:50am. After the initial explosion, some people began to take videos of the fire. In the following video, at time index 1:50, you can see another explosion that is reminiscent of a nuclear blast.
Apparently all the windows in a several block radius had their windows blown out, and some people were even blown off their beds as the orange/white glow flooded the sky.

This happened about 30km from my Mississauga home.

I thought for a second that it was really far away then i saw the BIG flare and all i thought was… WoW! That must have been terrifying for some people…
yep, as a result of this, the busiest stretch of highway was shut down on Sunday as people returned from cottages, etc. the blast woke up a partner at my firm. I’m wondering if we’re going to get any work out of this :S
I was worried my best friend was going to be called into work. she’s a cop in the neighbouring division. luckily, she wasn’t called in.
Wow, turns night into day that one.
All the best to the family of the firefighter who died.
By Hashut’s fart! That was a big one!
Well i did here anything said about that. well i live farther away so are local news only report cow tipping and stuff
Pretty crazy stuff… very glad I wasn’t in the area at this time.
In an interview on the news today people were returning to their homes, and some guy said that his entire house had a burnt-in odour of propane (or at the very least, the nasty stench they add to the odourless gas so you know its there).
