Drone Reveals Devastated Tianjin Blasts Site

Drone footage released by Greenpeace on Thursday captured the aftermath of the Tianjin warehouse explosion, on Friday, August 15, in which at least 114 people died and another 700 were injured.  Chinese officials are still working out the exact cause of the blast, although it is thought to have originated from a warehouse containing flammable chemicals, including sodium cyanide, sodium nitrate and calcium carbide. The latter can combine with water to form the highly explosive acetylene.
