Building explosion in NYC

This is madness. How the f**k can this be happening ?

Quote:
An explosion followed by a fire at a pair of apartment buildings in upper Manhattan on Wednesday has left two people dead and at least 17 injured, officials say.

According to ABC's New York affiliate, at least one of those injured experienced "heavy trauma." The conditions of the others were not immediately known.

The FDNY said it received a call shortly after 9:30 a.m. reporting a large explosion in the five-story apartment building on Park Avenue near 116th Street in East Harlem.

The fire department confirmed that the explosion involved multiple buildings, and escalated the response to five alarms, with 44 units and 198 members responding. According to public records, the address that firefighters initially reponded — 1646 Park Ave. — to was built in 1910.

Reached by phone, an employee of the man who owns the building told Yahoo News that she didn't know what might have sparked the blast. The 5-story building is home to four floors of apartments and Absolute Piano on the street level. The employee said everyone at the piano shop was safe.

It sounds like it was a gas leak. Would be horrible to think something or someone else was the cause. It always scares me to hear things like this happen in NYC. I don't live in the huge city, but after 9/11 things like this are always such a scare.

Residents next to the building said they could smell a strong odor of gas last night, and that the explosion happened just shortly after the gas leak was called in. Sad.

I'm really hoping this turns out to be a gas leak. Obviously I don't mean it like that because it's still terrible that it happened, but another terror attack is the last thing this country needs

I don't want to sound pessimistic, but get used to it. This world is getting more and more chaotic with every passing year. Our population is getting too big. Prices of food are going up at an incredible rate due to greed and availability. We live on a finite planet. We can't keep this up. With high food prices, less and less people can afford them. This well most likely cause parents to break the law and risk incarceration in order to feed their children. The crime rate will increase to a horrendous level. It's a grim outlook. We're playing a dangerous game with Mother Earth and eventually, we are going to lose.

From what reports are gathering, it was a gas leak gone bad. There was no proof of anything suspicious other than a strong gas smell from one of those buildings, so looks like the terrorists lose again.
