Days after a devastating explosion at a chemical warehouse in the port of Tianjin, China, aerial photos reveal the stunning extent of the damage. A steaming black crater marks ground zero, while the apocalyptic surrounding landscape is charred and flattened. Rows of burnt-out cars and twisted shipping containers stretch into the distance on all sides.
The total burned area spans 20,000 square meters, and continues to be dangerous—more explosions were reported by Chinese authorities on August 15. Residents within 3-mile radius have been relocated. At least 85 victims of the accident have been reported dead.
