Massive silo collapses in Beirut's explosion zone

STORY: The blast on Aug 4, 2020 killed at least 220 people. One of the largest non-nuclear explosions in history, it was caused by massive stores of ammonium nitrate kept at the site and neglected since 2013.

The remnants of the several massive silos began to crumble this week, with several collapsing on Sunday (July 31) and officials saying more of the structures could collapse at any time.
