Amateur Footage: Massive chemical warehouse explosion rocks Chinese city of Tianjin
Whoever recorded this video I hope was wearing pants because this was scary to watch! The sheer power of the explosion violently shook buildings and toppled cameras over. This looked like a war movie but reports claim this originated from a chemical warehouse. Sadly, reports are coming in that 17 people are dead and more than 300 injured. I am actually shocked these numbers are not higher based on the magnitude of the explosion.
Initial reports state firefighters in the northern Chinese city of Tianjin were fighting a dangerous chemical fire when the warehouse exploded. Many brave firefighters lost the their lives (including citizens of China) and this deadly chemical fire incident. I can only imagine the fear from the surrounding residents as each explosion grew bigger than the next. Pray for the people of China because this is truly a tragedy.
