    Initial reports veering from 50 to 100 rushed to hospital. I suspect there are many more and many dead. Early suggestions are this was some kind of chemical/oil explosion.

    This photo was from around five miles away. This was a big explosion. And that glaring mushroom cloud is disturbing.

    It's a petrol storage facility according to the bbc.

    "A massive explosion has hit China's northern Tianjin with scores of people injured, reports say.

    The explosion reportedly occurred at about 23:30 (15:30 GMT) at a petrol storage station at Tianjin's Binhai New Development Zone. The cause is unknown.

    Pictures and video footage shared on social media appear to show a number of people wounded by the blast."

    It was like an atomic bomb going off in the video on this link http://www.rt.com/news/312292-china-...massive-blast/

    I expect many people injured and unfortunately fatalities.

    This Norwegian man on twitter has by far the most information.

    This tweeter is linking to Chinese language tweets so I think the info is credible.

    @GissiSim Tianjin Port Hospital sent 300-400 injured to Tianjin Central hospital. Emergency rooms overwhelmed with badly-burned patients. (https://twitter.com/Margaret3786/sta...245994496?s=17)

    We think alike then. Anything from China or Korea sends me scampering for supplies.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    It was seen from space.

    There are many casualties. I am seeing awful photos shared on social media.

    Explosion in #Tianjin #China was so large it was actually seen from space

    It's interesting how in this video the sound and explosion seem to hit several seconds after the fact, like watching lightning during a thunderstorm. Except much more terrifying.

    Yes beware of looking up tweets as some have photos of injured people. And I'm sure there are going to be lots more posted.

    This video doesn't show the terrifying flash glare, but it shows the mushroom clouds perfectly.

    It's not a media link, but I strongly suspect this is genuine footage. I got it from tweeter https://mobile.twitter.com/GissiSim/tweets Mainstream media are all asking to use his pics/videos, so I think they're sound.
