Based on the pics, the explosion cloud quite literally looks like a 1-5 kiloton tacnuke.
5 kiloton tacnuke?! Oh brother.

I can imagine! We used to use a fertilizer / fuel mix as the explosive at an open pit mine where I worked. The mid day blast was spectacular.
Prayers for the people affected.

There is a video of the blast, and yes I’d say 1-3 kilotons but might be as high as 5. Thank goodness no gamma rays/radiation from a chemical explosion. Short of a nuke that was the biggest explosion I have ever seen.
