    A massive explosion and a serious shock wave shook the Lebanese capital city of Beirut on Tuesday. Emergency workers are responding to extensive damages and a high number of casualties.

    Videos of the huge blast, the cause of which is still unclear, quickly surfaced on social media.


    Lebanon's National News Agency reported that a fire had broken out at a fireworks warehouse, suggesting that this might have triggered an explosion.


    Local reports said that the blast was felt many miles away.

    Some observers said they suspected that the massive explosion was caused by the ignition of a flammable source such as a container full of fertilizer.

    Maj. Gen. Abbas Ibrahim, the director-general of Lebanese intelligence, dismissed the fireworks explanation as "ridiculous," attributing the blast to confiscated high-explosive materials stored at the local port. Local media identified the material as sodium nitrate.

    But Ibrahim said he would not preempt the investigation.

    A red-orange cloud — the color of which could be explained by nitrates — lingered over the blast site after the explosion.

    The extent of the damage remains unclear, but local reports indicated that while the blast was focused on the port area, there was widespread damage in the city.

    The National News Agency said there were "countless" casualties. The country's health ministry said that at least 67 people were dead and more than 3,500 have been wounded, the BBC reported.

    The country's prime minister said that Wednesday would be a national day of mourning.

    To put that in perspective, the Oklahoma City bomber used 2 tons. These guys just randomly had almost 3000 tons laying around for 6 years
