awesome

3 silos have been taken down this past week by conventional means. I believe the remainder will be lowered very soon.

I was told there is too much concrete and rebar to implode the silos so they have to be torn down.

 thank you register for not showing those going on camera with cell phones saying "can you see me, can you see me, can you see me?"

They are going to cut the silos then tip them over

Among two much rebar, the silo's are real close to the waters edge and contamination would result if any debris went into the channel.

Thanks for your input everyone. I know Ed Burdue and company personally. I suppose it would be better to take those down by conventional means being close to the water.   Happy New Year to all and thank God for this fair winter weather..so far

Good 2 B Me

Is there a time set to bring down the silos?

No one seems to know other than "Sometime this week."

I enjoyed the two men in orange jackets, standing behind the trucks that were parked, giving each other a high five for a successful implosion. thanks SR for recording the moment.

I just saw on channel 8 news that a young boy with cancer pushed the button to set off the implosion.It was arranged for by the Make A Wish Foundation. Very touching story.

Sunday was an exciting day. I went to the implosion of an abandoned building in Huron for the Sandusky Register and was able to bring my dad along as my assistant. Hundreds of people surrounded the little peninsula to watch the spectacle, including the cast of Haunted Collector, a SyFy show who had filmed an episode in the building, and Max Hinton, a 7-year-old whose Make-A-Wish dream came true when he pressed the detonator, crumbling the tallest building around i found above from this link:
