The dangerous thing about this (aside from the obvious loss of life, etc) is that Lebanon was already a country in a lot of turmoil economically and beyond and this could definitely exacerbate that whole dynamic.
There was a time is was about the richest county in the Middle East - massive banking capital. Sad. That looked like a munitions ship. There was what appeared to be smaller round munitions going off like firecrackers and then that massive blast.

There appears to have been a lot more than Black Cats in that ship or wharehouse; That's a bigger blast than anything shown on CNN or BBC during Iraq or Afghanistan, even those B-52 dropped 2,000 pounders, Bunker Busters, or the Mother of All Bombs. That is going to scramble people's insides for a pretty good radius around the blast site.
