Photos from the aftermath of the devastating Tianjin explosion

Yesterday, Tianjin, China was rocked by a terrifyingly large explosion that left 50 dead and more than 500 people injured. The impact of the blast was devastating, from the initial horrifying explosion to the shockwave that shattered windows and glass a mile away and now to the aftermath, the port city of Tianjin looks post apocalyptic.

Cars are burnt to crisp, fires are still going on, buildings have disappeared, and giant shipping containers have fallen apart like Jenga pieces. Here's a collection of photos from the aftermath.
