    New warehouse blast hits Tianjin: China state media

    A warehouse explosion hit Tianjin Monday night, Chinese state media reported, just two months after a massive blast in the eastern port city left more than 160 dead.

    The blast came at a warehouse storing "alcohol materials" in Beichen District's Xiditou Township, official news service Xinhua said.

    Police received a report of an explosion at 9.46 pm local time (1346 GMT), but by the early hours of Tuesday morning the fire had been put out and no casualties had yet been reported, it said.

    The explosion became a trending topic on the Sina Weibo social media platform early Tuesday, with users posting what they said were images of the blast.

    A total of 165 people died as a result of the explosions of August 12 at a hazardous goods storage facility, which devastated a swathe of Tianjin, authorities say, including nearly 100 firefighters.

    The explosions and their aftermath raised a host of questions in China about industrial safety, as well as the enforcement of residential zoning regulations, government transparency and the adequacy of firefighter training.

    best quote from the apnews link:
    Firefighters traced the blast to a hole in the ground where a toilet had been but the cause still was under investigation, state television said on its website.

    Nice post but not at all new or special. Last month 140 harbour workers died due to a chemical spill. China has a insane amount of accidents per capita be it explosions spills or whatever unseen reasons.

    Viking, n.:
    1. Daring Scandinavian seafarers, explorers, adventurers, entrepreneurs world-famous for their aggressive, nautical import business, highly leveraged takeovers and blue eyes.
    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Hagar's note: The first definition is much preferred; the second is used only by malcontents, the envious, and disgruntled owners of waterfront property.

    So, today i set up my chinese roomba. Xiaomi, so now i have a surveillance bot in my home, but eh whatchu gonna do.

    Anyways, on the smartphone app, when you set your location to "Mainland China" (which it is by default), it has very prominent tickers for "local air quality" and "local water quality".


    Bit of a reality check, that. /siderant
