China’s People’s Daily reported that no casualties had been confirmed, and currently, no confirmation as to the extent of the damage or the number of injuries is available.
It of course comes only weeks after another blast killed an estimated 139 people.
UPDATE- 9:37 pm GMT: A video posted here earlier purporting to be of the explosion was actually a video of the Tianjin explosion.
