Daylight has arrived after the massive explosion in the Chinese port of Tianjin, and reveals nothing but devastation, or as the following tweet from Offbeat China describes it, “a warzone”

According to the latest report from Xinhua, following the series of enormous explosions at an industrial area in Tianjin, at least 44 people were dead including 12 firefighters, with at least 520 injured, 66 of which in critical condition.

According to an AFP reporter at the scene there was shattered glass up to three kilometres (two miles) from the blast site, after a shipment of explosives detonated in a warehouse, raining debris on the city and starting huge fires. As the Tweet at the bottom of this article shows, the heat was so intense it melted hub caps.

For obvious reasons the local authorities are keeping complete silence on the question of what toxins may have been released after the explosion.

As we first showed yesterday, images showed a monumental blast soaring into the air, walls of flame enveloping buildings, ranks of burned-out cars, and shipping containers scattered like children’s building blocks.

“The fireball was huge, maybe as much as 100 metres tall,” said 27-year-old Huang Shiting, who lives close to the site. “I heard the first explosion and everyone went outside, then there was a series of more explosions, windows shattered and a lot of people who were inside were hurt and came running out, bleeding.”

Reports say that the blast was so powerful it created a mushroom cloud and triggered an earthquake that was felt up to six miles away.

AFP further reports that paramedics stretchered the wounded into the city’s hospitals as doctors bandaged up victims, many of them covered in blood after the impact of the explosion was felt for several kilometres, even being picked up by a Japanese weather satellite.

The magnitude of the first explosion was the equivalent of detonating three tonnes of TNT, the China Earthquake Networks Centre said on its verified Weibo account, followed by a second blast equal to 21 tonnes.

Police took into custody the head of the company involved, Tianjin Dongjiang Port Rui Hai International Logistics, local authorities said. Communist Party newspaper the People’s Daily said in a social media post that there were people trapped by the fire, but CCTV said efforts to put out the blaze had been suspended as it was not clear what dangerous items remained in the storage facility.

Specialised anti-chemical warfare troops were being sent to the site, the broadcaster added.

Which brings up the question of just what toxic pollutants are currently floating in the air: according to China Youth Daily, the possibility of there being cyanide at the accident site in Tianjin cannot be ruled out.

Complete and utter devastation around the massive blast area.

The newspaper quoted Doctor Wu Chunping’s saying that the commodities stored at the explosive warehouse include hazardous chemicals such as sodium cyanide and toluene diisocyanate which can penetrate into human bodies through the skin and cause poisoning. Dr. Wu suggested preventive measures be taken. People should better wear gas masks so as not to expose their mouths and skin, he said.

Wu explained that a single hazardous chemical explosion can be relatively easily targeted, while the situation in the Tianjin accident on Wednesday is different and more difficult to handle because it involved many varieties of hazardous chemicals.

In addition, a variety of hazardous chemicals will interact after the explosion to form more stable and more complex compounds and produce other toxic substances that fill the air and are difficult to dispel. Therefore, the follow-up work must include physical protection, Dr. Wu said.

For obvious reasons the local authorities are keeping complete silence on the question of what toxins may have been released after the explosion. source

    Oh, so if it’s a chemical explosion and thus the reason for the extensive deaths and damages…

        Will you stop posting this? I see the theory, but that is all it is. It is an interpretation. It could be that this is true, but it also could not be. No doubt America has turned into a type of Babylon, but it does not mean it is THE Babylon of revelation.

    Common explosions can cause total devastation of a given area, and massive explosions result in huge fire balls and lasting mushroom clouds. I think latter effects because heat rises and is turbulent? In fact even small log explosions in a typical bonfire can cause quick fireball effect.

    Years ago I witnessed a tanker truck explosion. I had just left the market when I heard a distant loud boom (like thunder). I ran to see what might have caused it, and to my horror I saw a huge fireball rise about a mile away, then another boom and another fireball followed by mushroom cloud effect. I drove towards the blast, but the overpass was already closed. So I parked my car and walked up to the police barrier, and saw the burning wreck in the distance nearby overpass. I later learned that the blaze was so hot that the firemen had to wait for it to cool somewhat before they could put it out.

    Below link is the news report 😯

    P.S. Just to set the record straight regarding mushroom clouds, it doesn’t necessarily always imply a nuclear blast 😉

    44,000 killed….. more likely, 44???? ha, why the cover up????

      44,000 killed

      You misread things 🙄

      According to the latest report from Xinhua, following the series of enormous explosions at an industrial area in Tianjin, at least 44 people were dead including 12 firefighters, with at least 520 injured, 66 of which in critical condition.

      Remember the explosion occurred at night, NOT during common work hours. Also in an industrial, NOT residential area 😉

      P.S. Had it happened during work hours, thousands would be dead. Like was the case with 911. However I doubt this blast was intentional, otherwise it would have been planned during the work day. My guess it was accidental caused by a chain reaction, unless was intentional to collect insurance? At this point there is no evidence to prove anything. Like was the case with prior fertilizer factory explosion. But for certain, storing explosive material unprotected in warehouses is asking for trouble.

    This is our time of sorrows. Have we ever seen so much devastation happening around the globe before. Forest fires, floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, monster storms, excessive hot and cold,freak accidents everywhere. Its in our bible friends and its happening each and every day. Even non believers cannot deny it. To any non believers, you can still take the Grace of the Lord and obtain salvation but time short.
