    Massive Explosion in Lebanon

    Some of the videos I've seen on Twitter are incredible. They're saying no casualties at this point, but from what I've seen that's hard to believe.

    And I misspelled Lebanon. If someone has the power to fix the title, please do!

    Someone told me recently that you can correct a title using some sort of advanced option. And now I can't find it.

    Found it. Just "Go Advanced" after hitting edit.

    This video from the water is the best I've seen so far to show the scale of the blast.

    There's a building next to the explosion that is flattened instantly.

    Apparently it was a sodium nitrate explosion.

    11 reported dead, but it’s going to be a lot higher.

    What a terrifying explosion, never seen anything like that.

    Dozens killed, thousands wounded in Beirut explosion: Live

    Lebanese authorities have said at least 73 people have been killed and some 3,700 wounded in a massive explosion at the port in the capital, Beirut.
    The cause of the explosion was not immediately clear. Officials linked the explosion to some 2,700 tonnes of confiscated ammonium nitrate that were being stored in a warehouse at the port for six years.
    For comparison, the Oklahoma City bombers used 2 tons of ammonium nitrate.

    No way it’s 73 dead. Has to be thousands.

    How baked in racism in not only our country but the world that when there is an explosion in the Middle East everyone immediately thinks it is terrorism?

    Didn't our president already state that it was likely a bomb attack? Like the guy or hate him, he would probably have the best intel.

    No doubt. Problem is he doesn't read it.

    He just made it up on the spot. That's his go to move.

    Lol no

    Three US Defense Department officials told CNN that as of Tuesday night there was no indication that the massive explosion that rocked Beirut on Tuesday were an "attack," contradicting an earlier claim from President Donald Trump.
    He clearly made that claim up on the spot based on it happening in the Middle East, which gets back to my earlier question/post.
