Details from Trauma Surgeon on Woodburn Bombing Victims



First is this from a local TV station;


Doctor: Injuries in Woodburn bank bombing like those seen in Iraq


There is some speculation in the story about whether the explosive is high order or low order.


As I posted several days ago;


Other information I've received leads me to believe that this was a fairly powerful explosive, based upon the description of the injuries


This seemed to be confirmed today with the release of the probable cause statement for Bruce Turnidge's arrest.



Officers found two tubes of Tovex, an explosive slurry, and a blasting cap.


Tovex is a high order explosive with a detonation velocity of about 4,000 to 5,500 mps.  That is about the same detonation velocity as ANFO, (diesel/fertilizer) but with a better density.
