Unless you were in an isolation tank all day Wednesday you surely heard about the massive explosion that took place in Tianjin, China. The video of the explosion was like something straight out of the movies it was so insane. Sadly for the people of China it was all too real as this footage someone there shot of the aftermath using their cell phone will show.

According to the BBC, more than 700 people were injured as a result of the blast. And at least 50 people have been counted among the deceased, including 12 firefighters with another 36 of them still missing.

The BBC also reports that the explosions occurred after a shipment of explosives went off in a warehouse owned by Ruihai Logistics, a company that specializes in handling dangerous and toxic chemicals such as sodium cyanide, butanone and toluene diisocyanate, as well as compressed natural gas and other flammable substances.

Horrible, horrible stuff. Thoughts and prayers for the people in and around Tianjin, China.
