Best video so far of the two massive explosions in Tianjin

From wiki:

On 12 August 2015, at least two explosions within 30 seconds of each other occurred at a container storage station at the Port of Tianjin in the Binhai New Area of Tianjin, China.[4][5] The cause of the explosions was not immediately known, but initial reports pointed to an industrial accident.[5] Chinese state media said that at least the initial blast was from unknown hazardous materials in shipping containers at a plant warehouse owned by Ruihai Logistics,[6] a firm specializing in handling hazardous materials.


 Several reports stated that at least 71 people were severely injured, and more than 50 killed.

The initial blast was estimated as equivalent to three tons of TNT, while the second blast was the approximate yield of a 21-ton TNT explosion. source

Pretty big, Enschede was 'only' about 4-5 ton TNT.
