On the same weekend in which it threatened to "annihilate" Israel following the nuclear deal it struck with global powers, Iran experienced a mind-boggling 164 degrees (73 Celsius) heat index reading last Friday, in what some might see as a warning by the Almighty Himself that all options are on the table.
The heat index, also know as the "feels-like" temperature, combines air temperature and humidity to give an accurate reading as to how the human body perceives the relative temperature.
As Iran entered the current heat wave breaking on the Middle East last Thursday, temperatures at the Manshahr Airport in southwest Iran's Bandar Mahshahr, home to over 100,000 people, hit 109 degrees (43 Celsius) with a dewpoint of 90 degrees (32 Celsius). Those figures compute out to an incredible 159 degrees (70 Celsius).
However, the Bingham County Sheriff's Office says that it did not receive any calls from residents about Sunday night's alleged blast.
This is in stark contrast to the explosion that several Groveland residents reported to the Sheriff's Office on Wednesday afternoon.
Those reports prompted sheriff's deputies, Blackfoot fire units and Idaho State Police to respond to Groveland to find what blew up.
But their search of the area turned up nothing.
Riverside is located about three miles west of Blackfoot, while Groveland is about two miles northwest of Blackfoot. Riverside and Groveland have about 850 residents each.
Because no one reported Sunday night's explosion to the Sheriff's Office it's unclear if the incident is going to be investigated.
When contacted Friday about the Wednesday explosion, the Sheriff's Office had no leads on what caused the blast.
Dozens of Groveland and Riverside residents have commented about the explosions on social media.
