A deadly gas explosion in Kaohsiung, Taiwan killed at least 28 people yesterday morning, combusting with enough power to destroy whole city blocks and lift cars onto the roofs of buildings. And now footage has emerged from local cameras, completely with terrifying pillars of fire.
The mix of dash cam and drone footage clearly shows the devastation and waste, and the panicked response of drivers, as they saw what can only be described as a towering inferno emerge from the street below them. It's still unclear what exactly caused the explosion, though a gas leak is the leading theory.
No matter what the cause, this sort of thing is exactly the kind of event you hope no city has to go through.
