A massive explosion rocked Lebanon's capital Beirut Tuesday evening. The blast took place in a storage facility at its port, and some said looked like an atomic bomb exploding because of the mushroom cloud.

One Beirut resident told CBN News "It felt like an earthquake" and he hadn't "seen anything this big in the city since the 1983 Marine Barracks bombing."

Eyewitnesses reported it blew out windows as far as six miles away, while French TV reported it could be felt as far away as Cyprus in the Mediterranean Sea more than 60 miles away.

Video posted on Twitter showed devastated upscale shops in downtown Beirut.
