Minister says it appears that ammonium nitrate more than 2700 tons of it cause the massive explosions that killed more than 70 people in Beirut. More than 3000 others were injured in Tuesday's blast at a dockside warehouse where the chemical had been stored. Not a Homsi reports that she and other residents of the area are shaken. I was at home when the first explosion hit on and then it was followed by a much stronger, louder second explosion that by Windows and doors shuttered and exploded. An entire building shook I went out on the street. It was completely devastated with glass everywhere. A facade and here of all the storefronts were completely destroyed. Nana Homsi reporting from Beirut.
