Looks like a 2-3 kiloton explosion.

Ship or warehouse containing fireworks caught fire and blew up, according to a couple of reports.

That’s one hell of a blast. Not as apocalyptic as the one Tianjin, China at that refinery a few years back, but the daylight really let’s you see the immediate destructive effects of that shockwave. Especially the nearest buildings getting ravaged by it.

What a massive explosion!

With so much destruction there are bound to be many more deaths from this in the coming days.

Fingers crossed this turns out to be a small fraction of that.

It was not an attack, you can see a series of much smaller explosions, before the large explosion. Munitions?
