  • So much carnage and devastation, which could have been avoided with a little more thought going into the goods being stored and the huge safety factor involved plus so much damage to people, this is really no more an accident and more thoughtlessness, so very very sad!

  • There are actually people that are somehow convinced this was a nuclear blast just because there was a mushroom cloud🙄 Listen- if this had been nuclear, most of the city would have disappeared, and you wouldn't have rescue teams on the ground digging through rubble 2 hours later.

I was searching for victims footage on youtube (cz i posted an emotional video about the Beirut explosion) and I swear I feel traumatized for only having to watch the scenes of glass hitting people over and over again to edit the video. Can't phantom the pain of those involved in it😢😢
