Only a week ago over a hundred people were killed and several hundred injured in multiple explosions at a warehouse storing hazardous chemicals in Tianjin port. Everyone within a three kilometres of the blast site were ordered to evacuate amid fears of sodium cyanide poisoning. Cyanide levels were found to be over 365 times the safe limit.
Since the Tianjin explosions, residents report a dangerous and, as yet, unidentified white foam that has rained down causing burning and stinging sensations upon contact with skin.
