That is beyond weird, the only explanation I can think of is the area is on rock and it reverberated before the Sound/shockwave arrived.
It's beyond me what could cause the shaking to have been felt before the blast was heard. I suppose, if you were close it would be possible for the
pressure wave to travel faster than sound, but if it were moving faster than the speed of sound at that distance I would expect damage to be much
It's possible for the force of the explosion to be felt before the sound arrives, but that means that the, air, vibrations in the ground, etc to be
traveling faster than the speed of sound, and that kind of energy would do damage. That is what a blast wave is after all.
Even if you are close to the blast, to feel it in the ground force .. God, that would be quite the blast.
We burry bunkers under ground, and use sand bags to build protection from bullets and blasts because they absorb energy not transfer it. This is all
making my head hurt.
That is a bloody impressive blast that's all I have to say. My opinion is unchanged, but my god.
