After the torpedo that mortally wounded the Lusitania struck her, there was a second explosion due to coal dust. Did this explosion happen right after the torpedo strike...or some time after? If it did, how long after? In what area of the ship did it occur? At the bow, amidships or stern? And on which side (I suppose on the same side as the torpedo...but it doesn't hurt to ask)?
