Quite the experience I am sure. I have never experienced this live. Nice capture of the simultaneous explosions.

Great shots but, anyone shooting this type of image should be careful to avoid the dust cloud from the implosion. It is harmful to both camera equipment and to lungs....

Fortunately dust was never a factor. I was west and winds were northerly and very lite. Yes it was loud and was confused with first blasts and no visual signs of them.
