Too scared for my relatives in Lebanon.
Loud explosion at the port of #Beyrouth.
The shock wave was mind-blowing. Blown windows even very far from the explosion. pic.twitter.com/ghINM3Nxlm

[SUIVI] – Another angle of view of the enormous #explosion which shook the capital of #Lebanon, #Beyrouth, a few minutes ago. There are said to be at least a dozen injured. This would be warehouse no.12 at the port of #Beirut, where fireworks were stored, which exploded. pic.twitter.com/dGjZxavHm2
