The explosion at the port of Beirut looked a lot like a fertilizer plant explosion. That or stored munitions that went horribly wrong.

They are reporting thousands of casualties. Pray for these good people.



Off-topic and a little self-serving, but, SUBSTITUTE fans, that was about the size and power of the Steinberg Island-ending bomb.

The non-fiction version is terrible.

UPDATE: “2,750 tonnes of the agricultural fertiliser ammonium nitrate” would do it. Preppers: if you live anywhere near (like within 10 miles) a fertilizer plant or storage facility, please take note this evening. And, why the hell was confiscated fertilizer just sitting around unsecured?
