Lot's of strange things happening this week... Today a gas leak triggered a huge explosion in New York's East Harlem neighborhood this morning, destroying two apartment buildings, killing at least two people and wounding at least three dozen others. Officials say at least a dozen people remain missing. Firefighters were still battling flames hours after the incident occurred and preparing for an all-night rescue operation. The adjacent five-story structures were located on Park Avenue at East 116th Street. A report of a heavy gas odor was called in to Con Ed, the local utility company, about 15 minutes before the incident occurred, and some residents claimed they'd been smelling gas in one of the buildings for weeks. At least it was proven to be an accident and nothing more then that.. Still crazy to me!
