    I think you did the math correct, yes. Let's see how many in the media can do the ciphering correctly.

    Thats a Twitter problem, not a CNN problem. Having a reliable estimate at this stage is impossible but everyone wants numbers as soon as possible so they have to give them something.

    Second explosion at 5:00 mark of this video. Produced something like a 3.0 on the Richter scale. All told they say it was about a 1 kiloton explosion.
