A strong explosion rocked the port city of Tianjin in northern China on Wednesday night, shattering windows and sending dust dozens of metres into the air, Xinhua reported.

At least 50 people have been admitted to hospital to be treated for injuries, China’s state news agency said.

No fatalities have been reported so far.

The cause of the blast was not immediately known, according to Xinhua, but  the BBC said, citing other Chinese media reports, that the explosion occurred when a shipment of explosives blew up at about 11:30 p.m. local time (16:30 GMT).

Hey, where's Gosho when you want him? I'm surprised that he isn't already here, reminding us that China's economy is really going with a bang and that the future resides with the sliding yuan - and the disregard of the healthy and safety of the slave labourers the Commies are so reliant on to keep the cadres' life-styles and bank balances on the up and up.....

This Vedic astrology writer's predictions were published in Summer 2015 issue of The Astrologer's Notebook, a print quarterly Newsletter from North Port , Florida. The article - " Total lunar eclipse of 28 September 2015 and world" - carried this prediction : - "countries such as China could be in focus. Though second half of 2015 seems to be causing concern , months October and November of 2015 are likely to trigger unwelcome things out of above mentioned aspects or areas of concern. Some islands located near sea may need to take precaution".
It may be made clear here that planetary impacts suggesting likely trends are indicative only and not deterministic meaning that pre-emptive measures or precautions has a tendency to either soften the outcome of impacts or sometimes escape the happening with God's grace.
Here the prediction about China during second half of 2015 seems to have unfortunately come accurate. Heartfelt condolences of this writer to the affected.
