On a hot August evening in the Lebanese capital of Beirut, a catastrophic explosion ripped through the city. It looked like a scene from a disaster movie, but it was real. As the shocking event unfolded, people around the city captured the moment, and its aftermath, on their phones. These videos soon went viral.
