Tianjin Explosions

Following the catastrophic explosions in Tianjin last night (BBC) Jackie has donated 3 million RMB to help the families of firefighters injured or killed in the explosions. Other celebrities including Fan Bingbing (Skiptrace) have followed his example.

The explosions occured in a toxic chemical plant in the port area of Tianjin. 50 people have died and hundreds have been injured by the blasts. In addition to the damage done by the explosions, there is also pollution from the chemicals in the factory that exploded. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Tianjin.

it is such a horrible drama what happened there and it isn't even over yet. The people missing are likely to have died or hopefully (like with 9/11) some weren't there or went elsewhere and haven't reported themselves yet. So many lives destroyed, so many have lost relatives and friends, people still uncertain what happened to their loved ones. People without homes and work. All the rubbish and waste still have to be cleaned up. It must be awefull for the people who have to do that as they will find missing people. Really wonderful that Jackie Chan and others are helping people so they don't have to worry about the financial bit. It is little compared to the loss of a life but it something and to know someone cares can mean a lot too. Candles and prayers for everyone involved.
