Beirut, LEBANON — The massive blast that has killed more than 100 people and injured thousands also devastated about 85 percent of the grain silos in Lebanon's capital city, according to a report from FOX News.
According to S&P Global, the silos can hold a total of 120,000 metric tons of grain.
The government said only a little less than month of grain reserves are now available.
Lebanese Interior Minister Mohamed Fehmi said the explosion appeared to be caused by stored ammonium nitrate, which is generally used for fertilizers.
