The death toll in the massive blast that shook Beirut has reached 73, the Lebanese national broadcaster TeleLiban reported citing Health Minister Hamad Hassan.

 

The minister said earlier today that at least 2,750 had been injured in the explosion.

If I heard right from ABC USA news, it was possibly a stockpile of ammonia nitrate.

 

My suspicions is that there were tons of the stuff detonated for that kind of explosion.

 

Confirmed by looking at reuters.com:

My suspicion is confirmed from the article.

President Michel Aoun said that 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate had been stored for six years at the port without safety measures and said it was “unacceptable”.

Many years ago in Roseburg Oregon a long haul trucker parked his load of ammonium nitrate along side a warehouse down by the RR. He heard fire alarms and looked down the street and saw his truck which was not yet in the fire. He ran torward the truck with the idea of moving it, two late the truck exploded destroying the city of Roseburg. Death toll was similar to the first reports from Beirut. It will go up much higher.

Terrible. I hope this wasn’t deliberate. 
 

Will mention the brothers and sisters there in my prayers, and all who were affected. 
 

In a country already devastated economically & politically and being hit hard by Covid this is just devastating. Poor people 😔

This is incredibly sad- I'm not much of a person who keeps up with world news, but this is harrowing. A news report pointed out that Lebanon was already in such a hard situation because of COVID-19. Praying that the brothers and sisters will be ok, and also the other people who need help and comfort. =(

The effect will be soul-destroying... already starving and unemployed, and now homeless and injured with many missing.  The misery felt by those poor people!  Keeping our friends in my prayers too, as we know whatever the personal loss for them, only Jehovah can give them comfort.  Poor things 🌹

An American terrorist used 2000 lbs of ammonium nitrate in Alfred murra bldg destruction years ago. 

 

Yesterday's blast was 2,750 times worse or 5, 500,000lbs of the product that exploded. Wow!

Wow, when it blew with that white mushroom cloud, I thought it was a nuclear device!  It reminded me of Horishema, during World War 2.  I hope this was a accident and not an act of terror! It was the 2nd massive destruction I've seen in my life time dealing with bombs.  Oh the loss of life, so precious!  Br., who has many Labenese friends, our brothers and sisters living in or near that epic of the explosion, my prayers to you and your congregation, and our beloved family's affected by this explosion.  I really thought some country dropped a nuclear bomb.  But I have heard something else.  Oh my, so much looking forward to the Kingdom, in power, no more bombs of any sort going off!
