Yesterday, Tianjin, China was rocked by a terrifying explosion that has left 50 dead and more than 500 people injured. The impact of the blast was devastating—from the initial horrifying explosion to the shockwaves that shattered windows and glass a mile away and now to the aftermath—and has made the port city of Tianjin look post apocalyptic. Like a wasteland.
