Im no expert,.. but for a surface explosion to leave that size & depth crater, its going to take more than the 24 tonnes ( equivalent) TNT suggested !

Maybe Godzilla migrated to China and that was his exit hole.

Is that first picture with the massive crater genuine? Jesus, if so that first crater looks like a large bomb went off or a serious tonnage of highly explosive material

Were there three explosions?

I was standing outside about 2 miles from this one. :shock:

We first noticed the fire and saw the huge fireball followed by a massive shock wave that about knocked everybody down. All nearby alarms in the area got set off by doors and windows being blown open and I remember a stream of fire trucks heading towards the waterfront in the direction of the blast.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_Tianjin_explosion
It is not known what chemicals were being stored at the site.[13] In addition to vast quantities of sodium cyanide and calcium carbide, 800 tonnes of ammonium nitrate and 500 tonnes of potassium nitrate were found, according to local reports.[35]
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sodium_cyanide
Sodium cyanide is used mainly to extract gold and other precious metals in mining industry. This application exploits the high affinity of gold(I) for cyanide, which induces gold metal to oxidize and dissolve in the presence of air and water, producing the salt sodium gold cyanide (or gold sodium cyanide) and sodium hydroxide:
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ammonium_nitrate
The chemical compound ammonium nitrate, the nitrate salt of ammonium, has the chemical formula NH4NO3, simplified to N2H4O3. It is a white crystalline solid and is highly soluble in water. It is predominantly used in agriculture as a high-nitrogen fertilizer.[4] The compound is used as an explosive in mining, and also sometimes in improvised explosive devices. It is the main component of ANFO, a popular explosive, which accounts for 80% of explosives used in North America. It is used in some instant cold packs, as hydrating the salt is an endothermic process, though it is being phased out of use in many countries due to concerns over its potential for use in improvised explosive devices and the synthesis of illicit substances.[citation needed] Ammonium nitrate has also been controversially used as a cheap airbag propellant in automobile airbags, most notably by the Takata Corporation.

Ammonium nitrate is found as a natural mineral (ammonia nitre—the ammonium analogue of saltpetre and other nitre minerals such as sodium nitrate) in the driest regions of the Atacama Desert in Chile, often as a crust on the ground and/or in conjunction with other nitrate, chlorate, iodate, and halide minerals. Ammonium nitrate was mined there in the past, but virtually 100% of the chemical now used is synthetic.

Footage has emerged of a major fire caused by a chemical leak at a factory in China. The video, captured in Yichang, Hubei Province on Tuesday, shows thick smoke billowing into the air. No casualties were reported and the reason for the blaze is under investigation.
