Does Earth's Magnetic and Electric Anomaly have any bearing on this?
On Wednesday 5th September a sudden explosion demolished a module that manufactures highly volatile components for commercial ammunition propellants. Eight people were killed.
Before the explosion one observation was made that a flaming spark was seen running up water pipes along a wall.
In the same area there also exists a magnetic field observatory that inter alia has an interest in the earth magnetic field anomaly having been observed for many years. This anomaly has a direct relationship with the anomalies of earth's electric current, as well as with the in-drawn radiation from the Allen Radiation Belt which is a known radiation risk for the International Space Station. A net combination of these phenomena is known to cause an acute increase of near surface or on surface conductivity which is related to clear weather electric discharges into man-made structures.
We shall closely follow the reports regarding the investigation into this matter and have our own discussion about these anomalies and the risks they hold for people who keep large volumes of propellants on their properties.
