Other than on TV and in war documentary, I’ve never seen an explosion this fierce and shocking. Bodies everyone and it looks like armageddon.
According to the Lebanese Government, dozens are dead, and (as of an hour after the explosion) 2500 injured.
The fire was raging in Beirut’s ‘Port Silos’ for about an hour so EVERYONE had their phones on it when the explosion happened and that red mushroom cloud concerns me.

Yesterday Netanyahu warned Hezbollah and Iran against “Testing” Israel as border clashes escalated.
Today, a huge explosion devastates the Lebanese capital.
Hope that is just a coincidence. pic.twitter.com/tRFEGLj2GV

Hard to digest.
Thoughts and prayers for every victim and family involved.
