A massive, devastating explosion in China’s northern port city of Tianjin has left 17 dead and hundreds others injured.
Chinese officials believe the blast happened in a warehouse storing hazardous materials owned by Rui Hai International Logistics Limited.
The blasts were reported to be the equivalent of 21 tons of TNT, and Chinese Seismological Network registered magnitude 2.3 and 2.9 tremors.
Thousands of buildings had windows shattered and doors knocked off. Everyone within miles of the disaster is being evacuated, just in case the disaster is not over.
