That shockwave blew the tops off buildings half a mile plus away. That's absolutely crazy.

So many conflicting reports and speculation about what caused this. Something about another smaller explosion at another location?

the dust created from handling grain is super explosive, more so then TNT can be because of how fine the particles are. They happen in grain silos in the midwest from time to time. This looks like a grain explosion.

...I don't understand. Was that the first explosion? I don't see how someone that close by could continue to hold a phone being that close to the 2nd explosion.

I don't see any indication that they held on to it. I'm pretty sure that phone is being taken for a ride. I'm just amazed the person lived to upload it.

I think the explosion in your video is the explosion that happens EXACTLY where my video starts.

It was the same larger explosion. in your video, you can see the flash charges going off right before the big explosion, just as you can in Banedons video

it looks like someone set this to go off like a bomb, using the grain dust and some flash charges to make it go.

I still disagree, and I don't know why you are so sure. The fireworks were going off the whole time. ...a firework warehouse was on fire, afterall.

I'm not sure it was the same one, I'm guessing and you could be right. but I also missed there was a fireworks factory next to a grain silo. nice city planning there, Beruit

So the PM of Lebanon says the explosion was the result of 2750 TONS of ammonium nitrate that had been stored there for 6 years. The explosion was the equivalent of a 1.1 kiloton nuclear warhead (minus the radiation, obviously).

For reference, the OKC bombing was 2 tons of ammonium nitrate.
