Explosive Event

Explosive EventExplosions can be intentional man-made incidents, accidental, or due to human negligence. The immediate blast can cause casualties by injuring people nearby. There may be additional environmental hazards from airborne dust and surface contamination from the blast. Terrorists can also use explosives with the intention to hurt people, damage buildings and other structures. They may use the explosives as a vehicle to scatter biological, chemical, or radiological materials, and cause even more damage.
