Bus Blocks Networks View of Georgia Dome Implosion

On Monday in Atlanta, the 25-year-old Georgia Dome--the only venue to ever host an Olympics, a Super Bowl and a Final Four--was detonated via controlled implosion just after 7:30 a.m. ET. CNN reports that most of the structure collapsed with 12 to 15 seconds, although parts of the venue remained upright, seemingly because the blast wasn't strong enough or the charges in those areas didn't go off. But one media outlet that didn't get a clean shot of the destruction was The Weather Channel. Shortly after detonation, a large bus pulled right in front of the station's cameraman, who cursed the driver as his view was obscured. Cleanup of the debris is expected to take three months. The dome's replacement, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, opened this summer, and the grounds of the dome will soon be home to a hotel, parking and green space.
