Craziest Explosion Youll Ever See! (Toxins in Tiajin, China)

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Fri Aug 14, 2015 2:39 am

Wow! This is insane! Several people killed, of course. Footage from the explosion taken from an American standing out on a balcony several building away.

The last explosion is so big you hear the cameraman say, "let's go" before the clip ends. Damn.

Tianjin, China (CNN): You can see the devastation everywhere: in the hollowed-out shells of buildings, in the anguished faces of relatives, in the parade of scorched cars.

But what set off the terrifying explosions that ripped through warehouses containing hazardous chemical materials, shooting fireballs across the sky and shaking buildings more than 2 miles away?

I see that in typical Chinese fashion, the owners of the warehouse had a meeting with the govt about how to store stuff like this safely.

After the explosion.

Great critical thinking skills, guys.

Looks bad.

Chinese officials face a race against time to clear toxic chemicals from the site of the Tianjin warehouse explosion, amid fears the blast may have released hundreds of tons of toxic gas into the air.

Soldiers have joined rescue workers in gas masks and hazard suits in the port city where the death toll from Wednesday’s massive explosion has risen to 112. Another 95, the majority of whom were firefighters, remained missing.

Officials confirmed the warehouse where the blast occurred was used to house more than 100 tons of sodium cyanide, a potentially deadly substance.

The presence of the chemicals was confirmed by Shi Luze, the chief of staff of the People's Liberation Army's Beijing Military Region.

He said workers were trying to clear the area before possible rain showers, which could create toxic gas....
