Q: Another explosion in Tianjin?

So apparently there has been another explosion in Tianjin. This time in the district I live in. There is no news though and I didn't hear anything past night. Has anyone heard about it?

This is what the news on Yahoo said:

 

 

"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".

Thank you for the links. It turns out that the explosion happened pretty close to my home. I just thought the explosion I heard was part of the walking dead, lol.

A:If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer. They at least might be able to point him towards a somewhat decent lawyer, I don't think they'd be of much help aside from that though. I doubt the lawyer would be able to do much other than help negotiate the compensation he will need to pay.   -- Stiggs
