Piezoelectric Explosions in Brazzaville, Congo

At least 200 people have been killed in an arms dump explosion in Congo-Brazzaville. The explosions ripped apart a nearby neighbourhood in the capital, medical and local authorities said.
About 200 people were also injured in the explosions, which rocked Brazzaville at about 8am (7am British time), flattening houses near the scene and sending a plume of smoke high above the city.
"I saw someone being carried to hospital with their intestines hanging out. They had been hit by a shell," one witness said as he left the area. A nearby church packed with worshippers collapsed, another witness said. Bodies were carried into the main city hospital morgue, where officials there said they had counted 136 by mid-afternoon.
There are still many more bodies at the scene, one soldier said. Weeping relatives of the dead gathered outside the hospital to mourn while others came to look for family members who had scattered in the chaos.
A spokesman at the president's office, Betu Bangana, said: "According to sources at the central hospital we're talking of around 200 dead and many injured.
"Some people are still [trapped] in their houses... They're saying the entire neighbourhood of Mpila has been destroyed."
Panic spread from Brazzaville across the Congo river to Kinshasa, where windows were shattered by the blasts. The river separates the former French colony of Congo-Brazzaville from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Both governments called for calm, and Congo-Brazzaville's defence minister, Charles Zacharie Bowao, quickly dismissed any talk of a coup attempt or mutiny. He told state radio the explosions were the result of a fire at an arms depot at the Regiment Blinde base near the city centre.
Residents immediately fled Mpila, normally a densely packed neighbourhood, as a series of smaller explosions rang out, a witness said. A plume of grey smoke still hung over the city hours later as a military helicopter circled the area.
The base and surrounding neighbourhood resembled a war zone, with many buildings levelled, burned or badly damaged and the occasional flame still flickered in the debris.
"I heard at least five or six good-sized explosions, which blew out the windows and brought down half the ceiling in our hotel," Patrick Mair, an analyst with Control Risks, told Reuters.
China's Xinhua news agency cited Chinese officials as saying three Chinese construction workers had been killed and dozens injured, some seriously. They were part of a group of around 140 Chinese workers from the Beijing Construction Engineering Group.
Television images showed panic-stricken residents on nearby streets as the injured were rushed to hospital or received first aid on the spot.
At least 225 people were being treated at the main university hospital, a source there said.
There were also pictures of crowded hospitals where doctors said they were selecting those who were seriously injured to have immediate surgery. Health authorities appealed for all medical personnel living in Brazzaville to rush to the city's hospitals.
A mass in Brazzaville's cathedral, about 2.5 miles away, was cut short as the building shook.
The oil-producing country has suffered coups and a civil war since independence from France in 1960. However, it has remained largely peaceful since President Denis Sassou-Nguesso took power in a coup in 1997.
Bangana said Sassou-Nguesso had not been injured by the explosions.
These apparently spontaneous explosions at the Brazzaville arms dump stand out among many such unusual events now unfolding, involving the impact of intense electrical ground currents caused by the coronal mass ejections of the Sun.
These unusual fires are the direct result of an unrecognized force: ultra-low frequency sound, far below the audible level of most humans. This infrasonic influence is building strong electrical currents in the metal objects like wheel-barrows, door-knockers and copper electrical wiring in the walls of homes, which then become hot enough to ignite the plastic sheathing surrounding the wires. In other cases, heated wires ignite bed mattresses and metal hangers ignite clothing.
The infrasound which is now being focused onto the Brazzaville, Congo vicinity is being transduced by the Orion pyramids of present-day Giza, Egypt, which act as a nonlinear lensing system for resonantly balancing the geomagnetic fields of Earth as stimulated by coronal mass ejections from the increasing solar activity.
Brazzaville, Congo (4.27°S 15.28°E) is 2,578 miles from Giza, or 10.4% of the Earth's mean circumference distance (of 24,892 miles). Other related events have also been taking place to the north-west in Nigeria, including Babura, Abuja, Benin City, Makurdi, Bauchi, and Jos - following a pattern of energetic surges caused by increasingly intense infrasound resonance.
This mathematical relationship of Brazzaville within the global pyramid network reveals the invisible quantum connections linking such anomalous events related to solar activity. This pattern of intense solar flares and the resulting infrasound fires at focal points around the planet will culminate in the intense auroral events of December 22, 2012.
