Explosion in Beirut
By Micah Halpern
Two years ago, the Port of Beirut exploded.
The explosion was equivalent to 10% of the power of a large nuclear bomb. It was so powerful an explosion that a major section of Beirut was destroyed and windows were broken 15 miles away.
The sound reverberated and smoke could be seen for tens of miles.
