supposedly a container with flammables/explosives in the port exploded. There is info for 7 victims in the BBC link above, 400 injured from Yahoo, but these numbers are very early ones.

I hope it's been in a little populated area, coz this was a 21 tons of TNT equivalent explosion, made 2.9 earthquake...looked really, really bad.

If there was a guy holding that first camera, I'm scared that he didn't survive the impact of that shockwave from the explosion. :scared:

That is very, very, very, scary. Hope that everyone affected by this explosion will make it out okay.

The Chinese govt. will probably lower the official death count, but that blast alone from so far away shows the intensity of the explosion.

These videos closer up are like something from a Terminator movie. Scary shit.

Weather satellite recording it from space.

There is absolutely no way that person survived unless it was a T-800.

Look at the brick wall below the explosion.

According to people on twitter, the original video was taken from a smart phone using an app similar to Vine, so the video was uploaded online instantly. It is very unlikely that person survived.

I had a feeling this would be the case. RIP - terrible :sad: Given the magnitude of the explosions though I'm shocked many hundreds are not dead.

luckily it's been in an industrial area with not many people living, but still it has lready 44 deaths confirmed.

If the below wasn't a parking, but buildings...could have been even more terrible -

People saying Terminator movie - yeah that Terminator 2 scene with the nuclear explosion. But to see it that close on the videos is unreal and really the explosion rocketed in all dimensions. I somehow wonder how such a bad misjudgment occurred there.
