they heard was just the accident which was amplified by the tunnel so it could have been something like that.
I would also like to know why he Joe Edwards Jr. was still there to hear what he thinks was the levee being blown? The article says he owned a truck
so don't say he didnt have a way out.
Well, his reasons for staying behind is completely irrelevant. Alot of people stayed behind, including a few ATS members.
From watching the video, I still think the "boom" was the actual levee breaking. Water is heavy, and when you have alot of it pushed up against a
levee that's not designed to handle as much as was present, the levee isn't just gonna crumble away silently. It's gonna extended, buckle, break
and eventually snap apart. And the snap could possible be very loud.
I've never witnessed a levee breaking, but judging by the video, the levee was made of concrete and steel. If you watch the beginning of the video,
where the man is showing the broken levee, you'll see a big clue right where the levee is bent outwards.. The concrete looks shattered, and judging
by how far (and twisted) the broken levee is extended, it looks like a HUGE force was exerted on it.
Just my opinions. I'm no physisist.. and I also don't know the exact measurements and forces the levees were designed to withstand.. but with the
naked eye, viewing the damage, it looks like it snapped apart with quit some force.
