A warehouse explosion in the Chinese port of Tianjin has claimed several lives and brings great concern to the area.

Authorities are saying that at least 114 people have died, and nearly 100 are still missing, including dozens of firefighters who responded to the chemical explosion. Several smaller explosions were also reported in the area on Saturday, and now there's concern that the winds could spread even more toxins.

Officials said that the amount of toxic chemical sodium cyanide was 70 times the allowed amount, and the company that owns the warehouse may have been smuggling the potential deadly chemical into China.
