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".

Scandinavian:

"no casualties reported" makes me wonder how many unreported casualties there was
