    That's a lot more terrifying. I was almost going to say "if they managed to upload it" but I see that someone just recorded the cameraphone playing the footage, so....

    Now we wait for investigations to happen once the area's back under control.

    Why does YouTube need to resize a clearly vertical video to fit into a portrait frame is the bigger question.

    The better question is why the fuck do phones even take portrait videos when they can do landscape in either orientation.

    Apparently the first boom was ~7 kilotons of dynamite, while the second was ~21 kilotons of dynamite.

    IDK how dynamite compares to TNT tho.

    21 kilotonnes beats Hiroshima. Are you sure about those numbers?

    I'm sure about the energy density, but not the quantity posted by Walrus. If correct, the second blast would have released ~26 kt (tnt equivalent), but I've heard that big conventional blasts like this are not as efficient or as destructive as a nuclear blast of the same energy.

    An official Chinese seismic agency said the force of the first explosion was equivalent to three tons of TNT, the second was 21 tons.

    It's not easy to explode that much in one go. Much of it would just scatter and then burn or just fall to the ground.
