    Breaking: Massive explosion in Beirut, Lebanon

    Amazing video:

    https://twitter.com/BNONews/status/1290678928093454336

    Looked like one building was on fire or was bombed and then a huge secondary blast emanated from that building that did major damage to the area. The secondary blast looked like something out of a disaster movie.

    That looks like ammo/explosives cooking off. No fireball like a BLEVE, and very energetic

    I noticed the guy quit filming for a minute to take cover. Good thinking...

    I'm seeing reports it was a fireworks warehouse. There were a lot of flashes before the main bang. Still have a hard time believing that main explosion was from fireworks.

    There was a flash of ignition in the air above the building prior to the BIG BOOM. That was huge. Almost didn't even look real.

    The scale is hard to make out, but that had to be about a 15-20 story building to the left of the smoke? Well, it was.

    Resembled a FAB blast, to me.

    Yeah, that sends the BS detector into hyper-drive.

    The detail in that video! The pieces of building instantly lifted up into rubble a block or 2 away...
