Noida's Twin Towers demolished

Putting an end to a nine-year-long battle, the Supertech Twin Towers located in Sector 93A of Noida was reduced to debris in less than 9 seconds on Sunday. After a dramatic explosion, the twin tower vanished as a huge cloud of smog spread over the entire area after the detonation. Over 3,700 kg of explosives were used to implode both towers by using the 'waterfall implosion' technique. 

The explosion has left an estimated 55,000 tonnes to 80,000 tonnes of debris which would take up to 3 months to be cleared.
