An explosion that rocked Beirut Tuesday has killed 70+ (at least) and injured thousands. The fierce blast — viewed countless times on video because it occurred after an initial fire that attracted attention — packed about as much of a punch as a small nuclear device.

It is thought that the explosion was triggered by some 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in a warehouse at the harbor, an egregious and fatal error.
