They need to keep the $$ moving...

The Texas City Disaster was the deadliest industrial accident in U.S. history. The incident took place on April 16, 1947, and began with a mid-morning fire on board the French-registered vessel SS Grandcamp which was docked in the Port of Texas City. The fire detonated approximately 2,300 tons of ammonium nitrate[1] and the resulting chain reaction of fires and explosions killed at least 581 people, including all but one member of the Texas City fire department.[2] These events also triggered the first ever class action lawsuit against the United States government, under the then-recently enacted Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA), on behalf of 8,485 victims.

Thats nothing. I see railcars with that and the petroleum accelerant regularly.
700 lbs.=1 day supply. For a quarry.

True, could be for calibration as well.

1 blk c4 = 1.25 lbs , 700lbs = @ 560 blocks

TSA responsible for approx 450+ airports = a little over a block each. It is still a little strange to give out a block of HE to 450 different places when local police /FBI have those resources.

Don't forget the ATF. Seems a tad reckless to have a pound of C-4 controlled by the TSA at each major airport.
