6.00am on Sunday I was woken up by what I *thought* was someone trying to shoulder barge their way in the front door (we are about 50 miles away from the site of the blast), I was just drifting off to sleep again, when I heard what I *thought* was the roof subsiding (being half asleep)...didn't think anything more of it until I was speaking to some of the kids outside on Sunday afternoon and they told me that their dad had come rushing into their room in the early hours thinking one of them had fallen out of their bunk bed! That was one hell of a bang!
Update - can you believe this picture (not mine, see the flickr set here)? Click it for the original size...
