VIDEO: New aerial view of that massive WW2 bomb detonating in Poland

PortandTerminal.com, October 15, 2020

WARSAW, POLAND – Earlier this week we reported that the Polish Navy had accidentally set off a massive World War 2 bomb that had been discovered in a canal near the Baltic Coast.

The British bomb had been resting near the Baltic Sea, 40 feet beneath the surface, for 75 years. The 19 foot bomb held more than 5000 pounds of explosives, and was known as a “Tallboy,” or “Earthquake bomb.”

Since our first report, new footage has become available that shows the size of the explosion which reportedly shook buildings and homes in the area. Fortunately, no one was injured. Approximately 750 people in the nearby area though were evacuated prior to the Polish Navy’s attempt to diffuse the bomb.
