An enormous explosion rocked the capital city of Beirut in Lebanon when a huge fire broke out in a structure neat the port area. Videos and pictures of the shocking incident have been shared online, showing the terrifying seismic shockwave destroying buildings, shaking the ground, and shattering glass windows within miles of its reach.

Earlier reports point to the ammonium nitrate present in the warehouse where the fire originated as the likely culprit, but there are also those who have speculated otherwise.
