A blast at Beirut port on August 4 last year, killed 211 people and injured more than 6,000 after 3,000 tons of ammonium nitrate exploded

'We opened all windows and are in the corridor right now,' said Dana Awad, a mother of two girls in a Beirut neighborhood. 'I am still feeling the earth shake. Living a flashback,' she added recalling the tremor that preceded the August 4 explosion.

Trump offered condolences to the victims and said the United States stood ready to assist Lebanon. 'It looks like a terrible attack,' he said.
The blast struck with the force of a 3.5 magnitude earthquake, according to Germany's geosciences center GFZ, and it was heard and felt as far away as Cyprus more than 200 kilometers across the Mediterranean.
The explosion appeared to be centred around Beirut's port and caused wide scale destruction and shattered windows miles away.
Saudi Arabia also asked its citizens not to travel to Lebanon from any other international destinations.
