    Brian, you really must learn how to read.
    Most gunpowder is stored in huge bags under the water in the ocean. You can look into this further or forget about it.

    Dearest Slic,

    The original article states, "...98 barrels containing an estimated 2,000 tonnes of high explosive had been stored for two years in the open, in temperature of up to 40 C..."

    1. Assuming your comment concerning underwater storage of gunpowder is accurate, what exactly does it have to do with the explosions in Cyprus?

    2. On what evidence did you conclude Brian has reading deficiencies?

    Please type your response s..l..o..w..l..y I'm a simple sissy with reading deficiencies of my own.

    PS: I do ok at math. FWIW, 40 degrees Celcius converts to 104 Fahrenheit.

    Slic, you can go argue with their military, emergency authorities, government, the local people, the power company, and the news media, that you've determined this explosion could not possibly have happened.

    Recoil, read what Brian wrote to me. I have nothing bad or mean against Brian, I read what he writes and understand him just what he says and means. Look.
    I went further into the article! Bye,Lee
