Authorities in Lebanon have detained 16 people as part of an urgent investigation into the enormous explosion that devastated Beirut's port area and much of the city on Tuesday. The blast has been traced to an estimated 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in a warehouse.

(wiki)  A mid-morning fire started on board the French-registered vessel SS Grandcamp (docked in the port) and detonated her cargo of about 2,300 tons (about 2,100 metric tons) of ammonium nitrate.

I'm wondering just how much of the damage in Beirut we're being shown. There are reports that the airport's terminal windows were blown in by the shock wave...that's at least five miles from the port.

yeah looks like the blast impacted for miles, and you can see how that happened in Texas City maybe even bigger.   


Ammonium nitrate may have sparked the Beirut explosion. It happened in Texas, in 1947, too

What is your point, peps?
Chemicals are bad?

I just happened to come across the largest explosion in US history outside of nuclear weapons by chance was interesting to me.   Looks worse than the Beirut explosion all over the news.

While we're in Texas City...

The 1947 Texas City disaster was an industrial accident that occurred on April 16, 1947, in the Port of Texas City, Texas, at Galveston Bay. It was the deadliest industrial accident in U.S. history and one of history's largest non-nuclear explosions. A mid-morning fire started on board the French-registered vessel SS Grandcamp (docked in the port) and detonated her cargo of about 2,300 tons (about 2,100 metric tons) of ammonium nitrate.  This started a chain reaction of fires and explosions in other ships and nearby oil-storage facilities, ultimately killing at least 581 people, including all but one member of the Texas City fire department.  wiki

Trying to blame Trump for the Chinese virus is a desperation act by your liberal, socialist party.
Trump had the best economy and employment numbers in history until China screwed America.

no one blames Trump for the "Chinese virus".  he is blamed for his incredibly incompetent response, or lack thereof in adition to the moronic things he continues to say like 'we have more cases because we do more testing.'

Luckily nobody in any position of power puts any faith in anything Trump blurts out whatsoever.

hopefully there will be books written about how our intelligence services kept the country safe from this treasonous idiot while he was in office.

I have been anticipating a disastrous back to school fall for the USA for many months and it's like Trump is working to ensure my prediction becomes true. 

Besides the president full steam ahead into disaster attitude, the prevalent right winger talking point is that kids don't spread corona to adults.    This is the same group who up until April were saying this whole thing was a democratic deep state media hoax to bring down Trump.
