Derry residents allowed to return home after mystery explosion


www.guardian.co.uk

Residents in Derry who were forced to flee their homes on Tuesday after reports of a loud explosion were able to return on Wednesday afternoon.

Mystery still surrounds the origin of the blast, which could be heard six miles away at the city's airport.

This is very strange, especially the fact that it was heard so far and wide.

The quote by the police officer saying "What we also have is reports of masked men who made off from Dunfield Terrace" makes me think it could be some offshoot IRA movement testing explosive, but surely they don't have the kind of power needed to cause actual shockwaves across a whole city?

It all seems quite odd, especially when the "strange rumbling sound" is back.

There has not been a serious attack in England for a long time,

I think the last incident was in 2009, when 2 British soldier's were shot, and killed.

Link to story

When I saw your headline, and the first couple lines of your post, I thought UFO crash


But with reports of masked men fleeing, I bet they are training for the Olympics this year.

I hope I am wrong, but we all know its a target, for everyone the colonial powers have screwed over,

Around the globe.

I always love these "Mystery Explosions" and just have to ask...How the hell do you have an explosion so big and loud that people need to be evacuated and yet...it's all a mystery?

My conspiracy sense gets tingling when I hear these things and I always think that maybe someone wants people out of a certain area so as to do what needs to be done without witnesses.

Distraction? Maybe...Maybe not.

Peace

Pennywise is the culprit, no doubt about it.

yeah no-one has come forward to say they saw the explosion, no damage has been reported!!!

meanwhile across the city there are eyewitnesses,evidence and damage from the lorry tyre blowout + cctv footage lol.

i think your on the right track tho jude, blaming dissident republicans for the interuption will make the people of that area turn against them even more. very crafty trick

There is no way in hell that a tyre bursting, even on a lorry, could cause shock waves and the police to evacuate residents.

Weird story. I'm wondering if there's any chance that it was a fast moving aircraft. The sonic boom of a plane flying above the speed of sound is notoriously loud.

doubt it that place is very busy, half the town would have reported a low flying aircraft.

It doesn't necessarily need to be a low flying craft in order to be extremely loud. The video I've embedded shows what Concorde sounded like from the ground at what I assume is typical cruising altitude.

You are intriguing me about "the strange rumbling sound is back" I haven't heard about that. As for the madmen, I hope the decent Derry folk get their city back soon.

Derry in the state of Maine is named after the city of Derry in northern Ireland. In Gaelic it is called Doire. But the English invaders couldn't pronounce it. It is commonly called Londondery by the British media and Protestants living in northern Ireland. The media and England in general always try to blow all bangs and bombs on terrorism in northern Ireland it gives them an excuse to maintain the British army on the streets and armed police checkpoints as a normal part of life in northern Ireland.
