Videos & Images Of Beirut Blast Epicenter
Videos and images are pouring in of the devastating results of the explosion that took place in Beirut, Lebanon. Here are just some of those videos and images.
Tyler Durden posted some satellite images of before and after the blast.
Close-up satellite ‘before and after’ photos have been produced by Planet Labs Inc., and republished by CNN, of Tuesday afternoon’s enormous explosion centered on the Beirut port.
The images confirm every building at the vital port, through which the majority of commerce and staples, including the nation’s grain supply comes, has been utterly destroyed.
A huge crater can be seen at the center of the leveled port, as CNN explains:
The diameter of the Beirut crater created by Tuesday’s explosion appears to be roughly 124 meters — or about 405 feet, according to a CNN analysis of a Planet Labs, Inc. satellite image.
That distance means the crater is well over a football field in length.
