A bit off topic but I am wondering if the closer residential blocks south of the fire had also suffered severe damage and destruction like the subway station. They seem to be in a similar distance. And if so, I can't imagine how the death is not substantially higher than what what is anounced. Even though the official one is of course already terribly high of course.

I guess it is too early to talk about reconstruction, is it? After all, the disaster area isn't even fully secured yet, is it?

The housing estate to the south experienced broken windows, but not the same extent of structural damage as the subway station.

On those apartments the damage includes all exterior windows and doors blown out on both sides of the building, some damage to exterior cladding, most internal doors blown off their hinges and internal plasterboard warped/torn. Nothing that can't be repaired. Probably survivable by most people with many injuries from flying glass and perhaps some perforated eardrums. See this video from 2:20:

Most of the deaths will be from fire fighters who were fighting a fire at the scene for some time before the blasts occurred, co-incidently just across the road from the HQ building of the fire brigade which was completely blasted and gutted along with the HQ of the traffic police.

Thanks for the answer. This is good news among all the bad news. Not to imagine where the death tolls would be otherwise.

But do I see it correctly that a train was hit by the explosion while being in the station?

Most Chinese subways close quite early in the evening compared to those in the West. Shanghai's subway closes between 22:00 and 23:00, and I assume the same goes for Tianjin, so the train was stationed at the terminus (this station).

The last train from the airport leaves shortly after 10pm.

This would take some time.
Can any other stations be used in the meantime?

I tried to use line 9 but not even at the most far away point from the detonation, the subway is working.

I missed the construction sites in Binhai

Tianjin is extending its metro network. However there is a question arrives.

I saw in Wikipedia that in long term, they will make some light rail line B2 to B9. In China light rail are mostly called to surface or elevated metro, i.e ‘metro rail going under (sun) light. There is also a modern tram system using Translohr technology in the TEDA area.

So what kind of light rail lines will be built in Tianjin in future? – A surface metro? A modern tram? Or an actual light rail i,e longer high speed tram? Please confirm.

Don't trust all what Wikipedia says, there will be only up to line B7. Also it doesn't include line B1, which may start construction soon, as well as the four C lines (C1 to C4), which will be built in the area between Tianjin proper and Binhai. They will be full metro lines.

The approved Phase II( 2015-2020) metro construction plan of Tianjin from the website of NDRC( National Development and Reform Commission) of China. It was put on the internet on Sept 29, 2015.
You must make sure your website support PDF to visit this website.

B-lines are metro lines that will operate in Tianjing Binhai New Area( TBNA).

C-lines are metro lines that will operate in midstream area of Hai River( a river whose main stream is in Tianjin)

Z-lines are zone lines which connect the downtown area and Districts & Conties in Tianjin. I think these lines are similar to commuter rails in function because they usually have faster speed and fewer stops compared to M-lines.

M-lines are metro lines operate in the downtown area of Tianjin.

So "B" means "Binhai", "Z" means "zone", but I don't know what "C" means.

PS: although the descriptions above, the functions of these different lines are mixed with each other in my point of view,especially when you consider the extension of M-lines to the suburb area.

Line M7, M8, B1 will use A-type-6-cars metro vehicles, line M10, M11 will use B-type-6-cars metro vehicles, all of which will achieve a max speed of 80 km/h.

Line Z2 will use A-type-6-cars metro vehicles, line Z4 will use A-type-8-cars metro vehicles, all of which will achieve a max speed of 120 km/h.

Tianjin blast-damaged train station to be rebuilt

Feb 24, 2016 | Source: ecns.cn

Reconstruction of a train station severely damaged in the fatal warehouse blasts in north China's Tianjin City last year will start in March, authorities said on Wednesday.

The Donghailu stop of a light-rail line linking downtown Tianjin and Binhai New Area, will be rebuilt at the original site, covering about 7,000 square meters, by February 2017, said a source with the construction and transportation bureau of Tianjin Binhai New Area.

Explosions tore through a container warehouse storing large amounts of toxic chemicals at the Tianjin port on Aug. 12. The station was only about 100 meters from the blast site. The light-rail line suspended operations after the accident, but has been partially operational since Dec. 16.

Light rail? Line 9 is full metro, even if most of it is elevated. Yet another example of confusing terminology.
