If pictures are worth a thousand words than video of an event like the deadly chemical warehouse explosions in China is ... well, we have no words.
They're dramatic, violent, stunning, and, most of all, frightening.
The video posted at the top of this story not only captures the mushroom cloud -- but it also documents a subsequent shockwave that had many wondering whether the city of 11 million had been nuked. It's scary stuff for sure.
See for yourself. There's home video, dashcam, and drones flying over the aftermath.
Metro has pulled some of the best video we could find on social media.
