Gas Explosion Tianjin China

Can't understand a word of it but they speak of hundreds people wounded. I'm afraid there will be many dead tomorrow.

Re: Gas Explosion Tianjin China

I was about to make a thread asking why no one is talking about this yet.

Also these related images were just shared on my twitter feed:

Re: Gas Explosion Tianjin China

Death toll is going to climb well into the hundreds in the long-term... just a guess.

It's not the most exciting video, but its proof that I didn't just make it up.

Bigger blast than any of the shock and awe explosions from Iraq invasion! I also think the death toll with climb dramatically and there will be a lot posted here showing the carnage.

Per National Earthquake Bureau the 2nd blast was equivalent to 21 tons of TNT. That's a big bang.

The AOL article has some very good pictures. The parking lot picture was stunning.
