Building Implosion

Elliot Jarett

On Sunday, January 19th, 2014 the first implosion since 1998 took place. The Scott Towers near downtown, was filled with explosives and once they were lit, the building came tumbling down. As I was there watching, I got to experience all of the sights and sounds. It only took a couple of seconds for the entire building to come down, and as it came down there was a huge puff of smoke. The puff covered the entire street, and it lightly covered the surrounding cars. I have never seen anything like it, and I doubt that there will be an event like this anytime in the near future. It was pretty interesting to see how many people came out to see it, and I know that this event will stay vivid in their minds for a long time.
