The Lebanese Red Cross said the powerful explosion that rocked Beirut on Tuesday killed at least 100 people and injured over 4,000.
Initially, smoke billowed from the port of Beirut. Many people in the Lebanese capital have filmed it with their mobile phones, so when the big white explosion took place, this horrible moment was captured on video from different angles.
The explosion rocked Beirut with a magnitude 3.5 earthquake, according to the Geological and Geological Center GFZ. Although President Donald Trump said the explosion looked like an “attack,” Lebanese officials indicated that it could be related to the storage of thousands of tons of ammonium nitrate there.
Here are seven videos showing an explosion from different parts of the city:

#BeirutBlast This is a video that I received from another angle – the person who shot it is OK.
Remember; many people usually jog/walk on the Beirut waterfront (close to the explosion).
