Another huge blast rocks chemical factory in China

No injuries have been reported as of yet.

A HUGE EXPLOSION at a chemical facility has reportedly occurred in the Chinese province of Shandong.

The People’s Daily newspaper said the explosion occurred in an industrial zone in Lijin, Dongying City.

RT said the blast could be seen and heard from a great distance.

The explosion happened at around 11.25pm local time (3.25pm GMT).

It is not yet known if there are any injuries or fatalities.

Earlier this month, a series of chemical explosions in Tianjin, (about 300km away) killed at least 145 people.

Correction: An earlier version of this article included a video reportedly from today’s blast that was from the explosion earlier this month. We apologise for the error.
