What should be taken  note of is the high level of censorship behind the event. There was a general lack of reports when this happened; including within china itself. China has taken action to take down multiple websites for reporting about the incident; in order to avoid misinformation IE.Rod of God theory. Over 40 hazardous chemicals were reported; to have been stored within the storage facility.
