Howick Explosion Pictures

Since it is in my backyard, and there were heaps of sirens I wandered up to Howick Village to see what all the fuss was about.

Turns out it was quite a big fuss. The Hasan Baba is gone. I mean like really gone!!

The Police are strolling around al wearing Glocks, and there are heaps of them and more arriving. The explosion happened at 0300 last night and at 1300 today wreckage is still strewn all over the street. This is looking more interesting than a gas leak gone wrong. (Click to see larger version, and yes those are restaurant chairs on the street.)

From Picton Street Roundabout….that is my dentist above Hasan Baba!!!!

and from the other side of the cordon.
