Early on the morning of April 19,1995, terrorists detonated a large amount of high explosives on NW 5th Street, just north of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. A rental truck contained approximately 5000 pounds of ammonium nitrate and fuel oil. Several buildings surrounding ground zero suffered structural damage, and many buildings suffered severe window breakage. The explosion killed 168 people and injured more than 600 others in proximity and away from ground zero. Flying glass shards resulting from fractured windows caused the majority of the injuries. The bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building marked the largest terrorist act experienced in the United States. This document reports on the damage to structures caused by the blast, and more specifically the performance of various window glass types and window constructions.
