Early on Wednesday morning, an arcade in Casablanca, Morocco exploded. Just...one minute it was there, the next minute, boom, it was gone.

Police are reporting that a faulty gas canister is to blame, which resulted in an explosion so powerful it blew out every window within 40-feet of the blast and flipped a car that was parked outside clean onto its back.

It's unclear at this stage whether the explosion originated inside the arcade or out on the street in front of it, but either way, as you can see in the above picture, there's not much left of the joint.
