So just to understand/imagine, a 2 ton non nuclear warhead from a ballistic missile will cause significantly more damage right.

What are you talking about, how's a 2Ton warhead comes even anywhere close to 2700 Tons of explosive material. Nothing comes close to it, except a nuclear bomb.
I am not sure if it's correct or not but I heard it was even greater than the 1917 Halifax explosion.

It was 8% of Hiroshima nuclear weapon.
It was 110% of Texas city disaster in 1947.
Some military guy calculated on twitter.
