  • HUGE Explosion in Tianjin, China

    So this just happened today, and its pretty devastating ...





    A lot of updates coming in on Reddit, as Media has been blocked out of the area apparently...

    Death toll is currently at 66 .. though I imagine it will climb, considering the density of this port city ...
    I believe they are saying it was a shipment of munitions that exploded or something?

    Anyway, can't even imagine the suffering that is happening on account of this, so we should all try and send some positive vibes thata way.

    Apparently the Port Fire Department and Police Department burned down ... 3 Fire Fighters dead already ...

    I guess the story has also changed to a Warehouse containing Hazardous Materials?

          we are hearing 32 dead 66 in critical condition. we are hearing it was a factory that was approved for hazardous material transfer/disposal. the head of the company has been arrested which would point to either not safely handling those materials or because of the accident the security forces not looking the other way for illegal materials they were also handling.

          depending on how this plays out this thread could get the republic blocked in china. i would suggest caution

            They say the blast radius is 5 KM. That's like 25-30 tons of TNT. Ugh.
