Russian Ammo Depot STILL Blowing Up in Kamchatka

According to ITAR-Tass and Pravda, Munitions are exploding at artillery depots in the village of Yuzhanaya Koriakiya near Petropavlosk-Kamchatsky.

According to the latest reports, the intensity of the explosions has lessened, although specialist expect the event to go on another day. Officials have confirmed that in the 75 hectare facility, 14 ammo storage areas have already burned. 7500 local residents have been evacuated. Early reports confirm one injury from flying glass.

Snap Crackle Pop. Probably some dumbass conscript smoking cigarettes in a magazine (that never happens right?) One burning arsenal can ruin your whole day.

One of the reports said that there were no nuclear weapons stored at the facility. That's always nice to know.
