Watch: Beirut Bride's Wedding Video Shows Moment of Explosion

Videos of the deadly explosion in Beirut have flooded social media, showing different angles of the incident.

One that has been shared millions of times shows a bride posing for photographs on her wedding day when the massive warehouse explosion hit.

The footage shows the moments before and after the blast as the bride, later identified as Israa Seblani, went from a beautiful pose to diving for cover.

Seblani is a doctor working in the US who went to the Lebanese city a few weeks ago for her wedding.

In an interview with Reuters she says:

“I have been preparing for my big day for two weeks and I was so happy like all other girls, ‘I am getting married’. My parents are going to be happy seeing me in a white dress, I will be looking like a princess.
What happened during the explosion here – there is no word to explain ... I was shocked, I was wondering what happened, am I going to die? How am I going to die?”

Her husband, Ahmad Subeih, says the blast was unlike anything he had ever heard and the devastation was indescribable.
