It's probably the most shocking thing I've ever watched. It's devastating. I read that up 300,000 people now will be without a home. This has been the worst year ever in so many ways and it just keeps getting worse. My heart aches for these people. I hope every country can do what they can to help.
We had an explosion in 2011 in Cyprus, again from materials that were seized from a ship and were locked in a place near a port, but thankfully it was in a place with not many people, it was near the naval base and only 13 people died.
We thought it was a bomb or something, we have a British military base near our house and we were surprised as they don't do practices now that is summer. Or an explosion from the nearby quarry. Beirut is just 190 km from my place.
