ColorfulMango:There are fire trucks outside! Don’t drive out to watch the excitement, it’s a bit human and common sense! ! It is said that the warehouse of hazardous chemicals has exploded! I strongly appeal: everyone close the doors and windows, not sure where the explosion is, not sure whether there is harmful gas, everyone should reduce going out, don't join in the fun, and don't cause trouble to rescue! (Help me if I see it!) There was an explosion in Tianjin Port. It was night and the air was drifting inland.

@小朦-mm:Not a gas station! It was an explosion in the Ruihai Dangerous Goods Warehouse in the development zone, erupting a fireball, and causing a second explosion of several enterprises in the development zone! At present, all roads from 12th Street to 4th Street are under martial law! TEDA Hospital is full! Tanggu Hospital is almost full too! Tell each other don't miss the emergency time! May the people be safe!

Belle doesn't want Beast:#天津滨海新区爆炸# This is the city where I have lived for three years. There are many friends and classmates in and around the school. If you can, please help them. The TEDA Hospital is full of people and can’t pick up patients. The injured go to another hospital! ! ! Stopping cars on the road bleeding! Need someone to pull them! Wish you all well
