Beirut

NASA's ARIA team, in collaboration with the Earth Observatory of Singapore, used satellite data to map the extent of likely damage following a massive explosion in Beirut. Dark red pixels represent the most severe damage. Areas in orange are moderately damaged, and areas in yellow are likely to have sustained somewhat less damage. Each colored pixel represents an area of 30 meters (33 yards).

An explosion that rocked the city of Beirut on Aug. 4 had the world watching, including a Seguin family.

Josh Squires ā€” a Navarro High School and Texas Lutheran grad ā€” was about a 90-minute drive from Beirut when he felt a small rumble as he worked. His wife, Ruba, their children and her parents were in the heart of the city when a warehouse in the port of Beirut exploded.
