There appears to be some people watching on the road (next to two parked cars). Keep your eye on the cars.

You mean the upturned cars?

Those big metal containers mangled as well.

Poor sods wouldn't have stood a chance.

Here, there, and every fucking where
The more you watch the videos, you can see the real power of the blast and shockwave. Don’t watch the actual explosion, but look at buildings in the middle ground. They literally implode. The death toll is going to be horrific

Unreal. Can’t believe they are only quoting 10 fatalities currently, will be a miracle if it stays under 100

Sodium Nitrate - a fertiliser precursor.

if anyone remembers reading Clive Cusslers Cyclops, a similar thing happened to Havana. + explosives and petrol iirc.
Most of the IRA's Home Made Explosives (HME) used Sodium Nitrate it was a controlled substance throughout 70, 80, and early 90's in N. Ireland. Horrible stuff.

Indeed. Someone on Sky News was saying that one rumour was that it was an assassination attempt. Who were they trying to assassinate? Godzilla?
There will be hundreds of totally made up rumours that will circulate round social media, mostly about Israel.
