Eventually the Supertech Twin Towers of Noida were demolished. After the dust storm is over, debris is scattered in the height of 50 to 60 feet instead of the tower. A thick layer of dust has accumulated in the surrounding colonies and buildings. The curtains with which the buildings were covered look like sheets of cement.
The work of cleaning them has also started. More than 50 fire brigade vehicles and more than 100 water tankers are engaged in this work. More than 500 laborers are also engaged in this work wholeheartedly. It is a matter of relief that after the fall of the tower, it was being estimated that the effect of the dust plume would affect the area of how many kilometers, but the effect of the dust is being seen within 500 meters of the tower.
Work has also started to clear the debris of the tower. There is a long queue of dumpers and JCB vehicles around the debris. According to an estimate, about 80 thousand tonnes of debris is expected to come out from here, which may take about three months to clear it.

In just 12 seconds, both the towers of Supertech collapsed. After this, the NDRF team did water fogging, so that the dust could be suppressed.
The towers were brought down at exactly 2.30 pm.
The specialty of the explosion technique used to bring down the Twin Towers was that no nearby buildings were damaged.
The twin towers built at a cost of 200 crores turned into a pile of rubble in 12 seconds.
Both the towers, built in the middle of the densely populated area, were grounded in their places and only a cloud of dust reached the nearby buildings.
About 7 thousand people were removed from the Explosion Zone before the explosion.
The fire brigade team is sprinkling water to control the dust.
Special dust machines have been installed to monitor the pollution level in the area after the blast.
