There has been a massive explosion in Lebanon. News saying it may be a firework factory. 10 dead confirmed but will defiantly rise.

Looked like a nuclear explosion, quite incredible. There appeared to be a fire there already on the portside.

Shock wave was truly nuclear looking.......that's what did the damage.

Last reports I saw last night was it was a 6 year old acid storage unit that had gone up. Haven't yet checked today what they are saying now.

2750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate! In storage at the docks since 2014 apparently.
