据政府消息和新闻报道,位于上海以南的一座港口城市发生了一场爆炸,已经导致两人死亡、至少30人受伤,有建筑物倒塌,街道上满是垃圾、受损的车辆和建筑碎片等。

根据新华社和其他媒体报道,当天早晨,宁波市一个河边区域发生了爆炸。宁波是中国最繁忙的港口之一。新华社称,爆炸发生在一间工厂,警方称事故原因仍在调查之中。

当地警方通过其社交媒体账号表示,事件已导致两人死亡、两人重伤。警方没有给出死者的具体信息。

根据环球网报道,至少有30人被送往医院。环球网未给出伤势的具体情况。

官方的安全整治行动已经改善了一些区域的工作条件,但仍有公司不守规矩。2015年,天津由于化学品不当储存而发生一起爆炸,导致至少173人死亡。

据环球网报道,周日的爆炸导致一座住宅楼倒塌,但该楼房正在准备爆破拆除的过程中,没有居民居住。环球网还说,楼中可能曾有回收废品的拾荒者。

目击者称,爆炸可能是在拆除过程中由于燃气管道破裂而导致的。但根据中国青年报网站报道,宁波燃气公司表示,该公司在事发区域没有燃气管道。

网易新闻的照片显示,一名女子被一名男子背出瓦砾,还有一名男子躺在倒塌建筑的瓦砾之中。多家网站展示的视频显示,有白色烟尘从爆炸地点冒出,在建筑物之间蔓延。

凤凰网的一张照片显示了一处工业建筑的房间,房子的外墙被震穿一个从地面到天花板的洞。其他照片显示房屋的窗户被震碎,地面上全是玻璃残渣。

Explosion in China Port Kills 2, Injures 30

BEIJING — An explosion in a port city south of Shanghai on Sunday killed two people and injured at least 30 others as it knocked down buildings and left streets littered with damaged cars and debris, the government and news reports said.

The early morning explosion struck a riverfront neighborhood in Ningbo, one of China's busiest ports, the official Xinhua News Agency and other outlets reported. Xinhua said it occurred at a factory but a police statement said the cause was under investigation.

Two people were killed and two more seriously injured, the district office announced on its social media account. It gave no details of the deaths.

At least 30 others were taken to hospitals, according to Huanqiu.com, a website operated by the newspaper Global Times. It gave no details of their injuries.

Official safety crackdowns have improved conditions in some areas but many companies still cut corners. In 2015, an explosion traced to improperly stored chemicals killed at least 173 people in Tianjin, a port east of Beijing.

Sunday's blast knocked down residential buildings but those were vacant and in the process of being demolished, Huanqiu.com said. It said there might have been people in the area collecting scrap for recycling.

Bystanders said the explosion might have been caused by a gas pipeline that was damaged during demolition work, but the Ningbo gas company said it had no lines in the area, the newspaper China Youth Daily reported on its website.

Photos on News.163.com showed an injured woman being carried away on a man's back and what appeared to be the body of man lying in the debris of a wrecked building. Video clips on multiple websites showed a white cloud of smoke rising above the explosion site and rolling across nearby buildings.

A photo on news.ifeng.com showed a room in an industrial building with a floor-to-ceiling hole blown through an exterior wall. Other photos showed apartments with windows blown out and glass littering the floors.
