What would produce a red cloud like that?

Normally, I'd say I hope everybody's okay, but there's a 0 percent chance of that, so I will say I hope as many people as possible are okay. That's scary.

That'll buff right out.
 
2020-08-04 11:38:27 AM  
Holy shiat!
 
2020-08-04 11:38:30 AM  
Big badaboom. Looks like a chemical plant exploded given the color of the smoke. I expect some exciting use of phosphorus or nitric acid.

My brother-in-law had his window blown out by the explosion. Hoping it's not a bomb 😨

I think it's going to leave a mark.

I've never seen a red cloud from an explosion. WTF?
 
2020-08-04 11:40:49 AM  
That red smoke is worrisome

Reagan last seen cutting and running.

That fallout is farking scary, a lot of people are going to have a bad week.

I see the new Taco Bell in Beirut opened to a blowout success.
 
2020-08-04 11:41:01 AM  
So does Beirut have a new pope or not?
 
2020-08-04 11:41:03 AM  
Holy hell.

I'm not by any means a bomb expert, but that seems really big for a bomb.

Toxic chemicals most likely.

Holy shiat indeed. That had to be some sort of chemical explosion? Unless a ketchup factory exploded?
 
2020-08-04 11:41:51 AM  
Nothing suspicious about that explosion at all except...

everything

Either that or some sort of munitions storage or production facility.  I don't think a gas line would have done that.

The cedars of Lebanon?

It looks a lot like nitrogen dioxide. I'm guessing whatever exploded was probably meant to explode at some point, just not where/when it did

Holy shiatballs.   Hugh Jass explosion

Prototype for this?
 
2020-08-04 11:42:16 AM  
Six seconds, about a mile and a half away?

Defiantly not the Israelis, nope, not them, nope

Holy sh*t. That looked like a mini nuke.
 
2020-08-04 11:42:25 AM  
that looks nuclear
 
2020-08-04 11:42:31 AM  
Well... That was certainly an explosion.

Yeah, I said that before watching the video. Definitely an accident or, at worst, some sort of sabotage.

Looks like Taco Bell's Flamin' Hot Felafel test marketing wasn't quite the success they were hoping for.
 
2020-08-04 11:43:39 AM  
Probably a "Fight Club" style fake your own apartment explosion scenario that got away from somebody.
 
2020-08-04 11:44:01 AM  

brainlordmesomorph: that looks nuclear


Nukes dont blow up with red smoke

Looks like it was something that exploded from inside a building

Hope he's safe, along with all the people in the area.

That white building directly in front of the explosion looks like it got vaporized. Jesus H. Christ
