    WOW indeed. I wonder what was in that building that disintegrated. The video in that last link from what looks like a restaurant nearby, you could see the building just disappear. Crazy. I hope they evacuated the place before it went up.

    This was one of the ports in Beirut. Smells like a terrorist attack.

    Death toll has to be in the hundreds. That was a massive blast!

    Yeah, anyone that was anywhere near that thing is either dead or seriously injured. KSL had a video on facebook showing a lot of rubble, mess, and wounded people wandering around looking lost.

    I saw the initial report at 10 like an hour after... ah, I don't want to be the bearer of bad news but that would see like an obvious underestimate.

    HOLY MOLY! Those buildings turned to rubble. Looked like CGI from a movie, but real life.

    Well that'll get the dogs barking, that's for damn sure.

    Heard that it was sloppy storage of 2700 TONS of ammonium nitrate.

    I don't think the ammonium nitrate just blew up all by itself. It needs a large explosive charge to set it off... or it needs to be soaked in diesel fuel and ignited.

    The second type is what Timothy McVeigh used in Oklahoma.

    I know the media is now saying burning fireworks triggered 2700 tons of ammonium nitrate, but based on the sounds and colors and the pressure wave, I suspect rocket fuel was the first wave followed by something else, possibly even the ammonium nitrate, if not explosives. Either way, some bad joo-joo was afoot regardless.

    Look up "Worlds largest non nuclear explosions"...pretty interesting. Also look up "Normal Accidents"...regardless of what "safeguards" are taken, I wonder how big the next one will be?
