READ MORE: Rescue crews continued their search Wednesday for survivors of a powerful blast at the port in the Lebanese capital Beirut, as Prime Minister Hassan Diab declared a day of mourning in the country.
The explosion Tuesday devastated entire neighborhoods, killing more than 100 people and injuring at least 4,000 others, the Lebanese Red Cross said early Wednesday.
Beirut Governor Marwan Abboud said the "apocalyptic situation" has left an estimated 300,000 people homeless.
Officials said they expected the number of victims to rise as crews worked their way through rubble of damaged buildings and people searched for missing family and friends.
