Power like in Hiroshima: Explosion off China’s coast caused a surge in radiation
U.S. submarine to relaunch?: Media reported a powerful “submarine nuclear explosion” in the South China Sea
A powerful explosion at a depth of about fifty meters occurred in the South China Sea. According to several media reports, its capacity was 10 to 20 kilotons in TNT equivalent. “Did the American submarine break?” the experts suggested.
According to the World Ocean Monitoring Service, sensors recorded the moment of the explosion on November 21 at about 6 p.m. U.S. Eastern time. In China and the island of Taiwan, there is allegedly an increase in radioactive levels.
According to the portal Hal Turner Radio Show, the earthquake is excluded, and the force of the explosion is indicated by the “sudden shock wave” of great power. This information has not been officially confirmed. However, a number of military experts have already suggested that the explosion is related to an event that occurred onboard one of the U.S. nuclear submarines, which are constantly in the area.
Between the Indochina Peninsula and the Philippine Islands, a nuclear submarine exploded in the South China Sea, causing a massive spike in radiation in nearby countries, HalTurnerRadioShow reported.
The emergency reportedly happened at 01:22 on November 21. The submarine exploded at a depth of about fifty meters.
In addition, the publication showed maps with a radius of radioactive release. The power of the explosion was 10 to 20 kilotons.
By the way, the power of “Baby” which was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, was 13 to 18 kilotons, and “Fat” that three days later dropped on Nagasaki, equal to 21 kilotons of TNT.
According to some reports, the submarine belongs to China. Excess radiation levels were recorded in Vietnam, Taiwan, and China. However, the Chinese side does not disclose information. At the same time, the U.S. believes that such an explosion could only happen from a warhead.
