At least 17 people were killed and over 400 injured with 32 people in serious condition after a massive explosion with the force of 21 tons of TNT exploded within a warehouse in Tianjin, about 200 kilometers east of Beijing, on Wednesday evening.
Cameras seem to have captured at least two explosions, the largest of which created an enormous mushroom cloud over the site of the eruption.
Immediately following the blast late on Wednesday, volunteers began to gather outside hospitals in the area to offer assistance. Chinese President Xi Jinping has urged all-out efforts by authorities to control the fire and rescue the injured. He also called to severely punish those responsible.
