BEIJING, August 14. /TASS/. Cyanide and other hazardous substances have been found near the site of deadly blasts in the port city of Tianjin, in northern China, the country’s ministry of environmental protection said on Friday.
The harmful pollutants detected from two drainage outlets of the warehouse at the center of the explosions were eight times higher than the usual levels, according to the ministry.
Over 200 soldiers trained to deal with nuclear, biological and chemical catastrophes have been dispatched to Tianjin, where 22 stations have been set up to monitor the environmental situation, and five of them check on water quality.
A series of powerful blasts at an oil product storehouse in the port city of Tianjin on Wednesday night left 50 people dead and 701 others injured, with 70 of them in critical condition.
