Caught On Tape: Another Huge Chemical Warehouse Explosion Rocks China

Tyler Durden's picture

Who could have seen this coming? 

Just a little over a week after a powerful explosion killed 114 and injured more than 700 in the Chinese port of Tianjin, it appears as though a second blast has occurred at a chemical warehouse, this time in China's eastern Shandong province. A residential area is reportedly located just 1 km away.

We'll await the details which we imagine will suggest that, as was the case in Tianjin, many more tonnes of something terribly toxic were stored than is allowed under China's regulatory regime which apparently only applies to those who are not somehow connected to the Politburo. Indeed, The People's Daily is reporting that the plant contained adiponitrile, which the CDC says can cause "irritation eyes, skin, respiratory system; headache, dizziness, lassitude (weakness, exhaustion), confusion, convulsions; blurred vision; dyspnea (breathing difficulty); abdominal pain, nausea, [and] vomiting."

There are two videos shown below. As of now, there's some confusion as to which is authentic.

From BBC:

An explosion has been reported at a chemical plant in China's eastern province of Shandong.


Large flames can be seen from the site of the blast in Zibo County. There are so far no reports of any casualties.


The People's Daily said a warehouse at the plant exploded and firefighters are at the scene. There is a residential area about 1km from the plant.


Earlier this month blasts in the northern city of Tianjin killed at least 116 people, with hundreds hurt.


Unverified YouTube footage showed a massive explosion at the Shandong plant.


It is not yet clear if homes in the Shandong area have been damaged.

And from Reuters:

The factory produced adiponitrile, a colorless liquid that releases poisonous gases when it reacts with fire, the People's Daily said, citing the state-run Beijing Times.


Seven fire brigades consisting of a total of 150 fire fighters and 20 fire engines were sent to the scene and fire brigades that are trained to work with fires involving chemicals are being dispatched, Xinhua said.


Windows shattered in the village where the blast occurred, state media said, and tremors reverberated within 2 kilometers (1 mile) of the site of the explosion.

Smells like a friction fire...  where the (over reporeted (We  had 15 million tons(In a wharehouse that can only hold 5 million)) commidity rubs up against the insurance policy.

As a wise old prophet once so succinctly stated:


Must be more retaliation for the 530 point crash yesterday

Publicus's picture

The Western Elite is really ramping up their attack on China.


China will retaliate by sending troops and heavy demolition equiptments into Syria to clear away ISIS civilization zones. Then the heavy construction equiptments will arrive with millions of Chinese settlers.

What's the probability, that since the west offshored its manufacturing and (lots of ODM relationships) China's 'economy' and infrastructure grew a couple of order of magnitude, and the first tech boom (hardware), the second one (Internet), the third one (social fuckyouedia), and no bigass explosions the whole time... that two like events of this magnitude just happen... within a couple of weeks of each other.

Yep, coinkidinks, just like vanishing steel. POOF, bitchez, aaaaand it's gone.

Geez.. the whole freaking country is toxic..

and incredibly careless.

You're talking about the CIA and .gov, right?  There are chemicals everywhere around this planet.  There are also passenger planes too, but 2 downed in less than a year from the same airline is pure coincidence, isn't it?

No conspiracy theorist here, just looking at the facts in front of me, which are exported inflation, a fetish to down passenger planes, and destabilizing other countries from within.

CIA sure is busy these days.

Obviously this is agents of the Chicomm central bank destroying inventory and breaking windows.   There's more than one way to align demand with supply amiright?    FDR did the same shit during his centrally planned recession, plowing crops under, pouring milk down the drain, to raise prices.   Some of those policies are still in place here, so do not doubt the Chicomms ability to get to the same point.

Just so the chinese goverment gets the messages, the statistical odds, ...

[Chinese Goverment]
- That Tianji accident was something that happens once every few decades to every industrial nation.

[Hidden Presence]

- [Clearing throat] It was supposed to be a message to the devaluation currency step. Make it more clear.

[Chinese Goverment]
- That Tianji accident was something that happens once every few weeks to every industrial nation. [Sound of cognitive disonance in the background]

Hey Fellow travailers....

Check this out and pass it on...

I'm starting sumthing...

Epic video, ORI. The only way out for individuals is non-participation with centralized force, and personal and community de-centralization. It takes resources and current system 'money' to facilitate such things. You have to participate in the system now, so that you may gain enough labor4'money' translations to hopefully not participate in the future? What is a poor man to do in this wicked world?

p.s. I've continued some thoughts on the "it takes a village" concept in the student loans thread.

On the topic of coincidence, is there a crater at this site of this explosion?

"Geez.. the whole freaking country is toxic.."

Perhaps that is precisely the point trying to be made by the person(s) responsible for these 'accidents'.

They've finally figured out how to cure their overcapacity problem. Just blow shit up until the excess inventory is all gone.

Not only excess inventory but imaginary inventory as well, for insurance purposes.

When you see events like these explosions...

1 is an accident.

2 is coincidence.

3 is enemy action.

Was there any doubt who ISIS is?

Langley and Glilot Junction.

Zion is a scheme, not an ethnicity.


For those in the know, it is close to impossible to name one truly Islamic terrorism act of the last 15, 20, 25...years. As for the DC US and Israel, well that's entirely another matter.

Buckaroo Banzai's picture

Islam has a rich and substantial history of wreaking terror over the last 1400 years. The CIA and Mossad have only been around since 1946. I'm sure they are up to no good but the fact is, Muslims don't need much help when it comes to terror. As they say, "it's in the book"-- the Koran that is.

Talking to a (relatively uninformed) friend last night who surprisingly heard about the stock meltdown. From what he read on Yahoo, it was because of China's messed up market... So that narrative is being prepped for the sheeple.

Anyone with something large and valuable would be foolish to count on insurance if the re-insurance is on the back of AIG and Lloyds. In dangerous times one should simply protect one's wealth and not count on insurance.

I'm not saying this could not happen but I just don't know how reliable insurance in China.

I thought a policy written on flash paper seemed a little odd.

Isn't that a typo: 15.000.000 tons? If it were water, it would mean a cube (LxBxH) of 246 m!

I guess it's more like kilograms.

Wonder what the payback will be?

Yep, it's on.  How long until China retaliates?  Lets hope that they are as wise as Russia.

haha, so, you are going to vote for the iran treaty eh? and the french proposed un treaty about israel on sept 15th? and approve the russia sale of S-300's to iran? Well, I think israel is already at war with all who are on the other side. This will only expand, and very soon I am guessing. Not even a month left.

That snuck right up on me - I'm nowhere near prepared enough. <sigh...> Where does the time go?

we all lose in this one. make sure you have at least the preps fema recommends.  its the elites, but you blame the regular folk.

China is wiser than Russia.  And what you take as wisdom (inaction) from Russia is born of weakness and inability. 

This attack (if it is one, the previous one was an attack) is a good thing.  Makes it clear to China they must fight or be dominated forever.

Each attacks with the best weapons they have.  The US has bombs, biowarfare, cia sponsored internal terrorism and other physical attacks.  The Chinese have economic weapons and gold.  (The US gold have been pilfered in the dark of night and will not be returned.)

Will the US next use biowarfare and if they do will China return the favor in kind?

Any physical movement of the military sort in the ME by China will be a clear sign they are getting ready to fight.  Movement into Iran with actual forces, it is too late for Syria.  I seriously doubt they are ready though.  China recently pulled back it's commitment to Russia and some large projects, perhaps China knows they will have to go it alone and Russia is impotent or not to be trusted as a dependable allie.
