Alarming levels of sodium cyanide have been found at wastewater monitoring stations in the disaster-stricken city of Tianjin almost five days after a series of deadly explosions claimed at least 114 lives and sparked intense criticism of the Chinese government.

At a press conference on Monday morning, Bao Jingling, the chief engineer from Tianjin’s environmental protection bureau, said excessive levels of the toxic chemical had been detected in surface wastewater at the blast site. The highest levels detected were 27 times acceptable limits.

    Dewpoint was 73 yesterday, according to the little chart I found, that’s in the range of “intolerable.”

    Our LR weather station said it was 83 a couple hours ago. We think the weather station is starting to screw up, may need to buy a new one. Or it’s correct about the 83.

    No one has mentioned how much toxic waste got shot up in the atmosphere and is drifting this way.

    WIKI sez:At around 23:30 (15:30 UTC), the first explosion occurred and registered as a magnitude 2.3 earthquake. Initial reports estimate that the first explosion was equivalent to 3 tonnes of TNT. Shortly after, a second more powerful one occurred which caused most of the damage and injuries with shock-waves felt many kilometres away. The second explosion has been estimated to be equivalent to 21 tonnes of TNT. The resulting fireballs reached hundreds of meters high. Near 1/10 of Hiroshima force being applied in all directions especially upward.
    With the ground as the stationary object and all the force applied being ejected upward the risk for contaminated air is greater locally and particles entering the jet-stream lesser but significant never the less. Just one more piece of chemical crap we have to breathe thanks to bad management.

      Tropopause is about 11 km up at that latitude. There has to be a considerable upward thrust to penitrate it. Most thunderstorms don’t.
