It's a big explosion but I doubt that is nuclear. I looks like it was a storage depot (or factory as claimed) and something big blew and probably destroyed nuke warheads or components releasing radioactivity. I was at one on Oki and we stored conventional with nukes though they were well separated. Reactors don't explode.

People see a 'mushroom cloud' and assume nuclear, but all big bombs, explosions, do that.
