Wuhan city in Central China's Hubei province demolished a 77-meter-high building with controlled blasting on Dec 9, 2014.

This is the highest building that has been demolished using the blasting technique in Wuhan. The structure once was a hotel. Two other buildings were demolished at the same time.

In order not to cause traffic problems, the blasting company took comprehensive measures to reduce the dust. The traffic was back to normal just 20 minutes after the building was demolished.
