With an explosion that size.. I wouldn't be surprised if the death total climbs to over one thousand.

I could never live in a place where safety procedures are barely existent, and the ones that exist are ignored 100% of the time anyway. RIP to those unaware and those who don't have a choice.

I saw this last night and the first thing I thought was a bomb went off. Its almost unbelievable how large that is for being a plant.

So sad. Thats a huge number of injured, but rather surprised there were not more killed from this. Looks like a war zone.

"This Chinese source claims the list of damaged vehicles includes:

1065 Touaregs
114 Golfs
391 Beetles
84 up!s
257 Tiguans
39 SportsVans
28 Magotans (locally built Passats) and 770 “Specials”, whatever those might be.
The exploding warehouse hit the port with energy equivalent of three tonnes of TNT, so no wonder why the site was still smoking this morning despite the firefighters best efforts, who lost twelve of their own in this horrific disaster."

^ Weird, I wonder why in the middle pic the dents/divots under the rear window are in the exact same position? Or maybe it's part of the body to begin with?

That middle photo, I think those cars were actually on fire.

So if I had to guess,
Those parts would be like an attachment point of a different material, like a plastic retention nut or something.
