Middle class, suburban ghetto.
Just read a story on it. Officials are saying it was a boat carrying fireworks. Anyone who has been around fireworks knows it could be just that if they exploded.

Fireworks can be dangerous as hell. Sure hope that's what it was and not a rocket fired by terrorists.
Fireworks.
Iranian nuclear fireworks.

Doesn’t appear to be a joke-

They heard it 50 miles away.
Looks like every nuclear explosion I've ever seen.
Looks a lot like some tannerite explosions I've set off.
How much?


I've never seen more than about 8 ounces
The biggest we've set off was 15 lbs.
We set off 400 lbs of C4
I'd imagine that was a pretty big bang.
They heard it 50 miles away. Mushroom cloud seen for miles.

fireworks manufacturing and storage should never be in populated areas, in a downtown is crazy
Reports now are that there may have been 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate or ANFO stored there.

That would be the equivalent of a small nuclear explosion

Wow! just wow!!!!!!:eek-52:


I'm reading it was perhaps an arms depot?... full with missiles from Iran? the first explosions we heard were the warheads being destroyed....

also

Al Arabiya reporting: "Initial information: The explosion occurred in a Hezbollah arms store in Beirut Port."

so yes, it seems it was an arms depot.....:dunno: we'll see

To think Lebanon was such a beautiful and peaceful country decades ago! sad.
