The scale of devastation from Tuesday's Beirut blast can be seen in new satellite images that provide a sobering perspective of the pair of explosions that killed more than 100 people, injured 4,000 others and leveled several warehouses and buildings in the surrounding area.

The new pictures from ISI Imagesat International show massive damage to the city's industrial waterfront following the blasts that erupted next to the Beirut Port Silos.

Hospitals were also damaged and windows shattered miles away as the shockwave from the explosion moved from the industrial waterfront to the city's residential areas and shopping districts. The blast also changed the shoreline in the port, according to local reports.

Initially, President Trump claimed a bomb might have gone off in the city -- a statement that was contradicted by U.S. military officials as well as those in Lebanon.
