Beirut Port: Signs of new silos collapse imminent

Security forces on Wednesday cordoned off Beirut’s port and employees were asked to leave as the sensors installed in the northern part of the blast-silos sent signals indicating that a fresh collapse is imminent.

A small section of the massive grain silos collapsed in a huge cloud of dust on Sunday after a weekslong fire, triggered by grains that had fermented and ignited in the summer heat.

The 50 year-old, 48 meter tall silos had withstood the force of the explosion two years ago, effectively shielding the western part of Beirut from the blast that killed over 200 people, injured more than 6,000 and badly damaged entire neighborhoods.
