Steam Explosion In NYC

Steam Explosion In NYC

Blast In Midtown Manhattan

Like a gushing geyser, a street in midtown Manhattan literally exploded Wednesday night, a 24 inch steam pipe blasting open, sending people rushing for cover during the height of rush hour. A huge crater sits in the middle the street, one big enough to eat up a large tow truck. Now it is time to assess the damage.

It happened just before 6:00 p.m. near 41st Street between 3rd Avenue and Lexington Avenue, and in the first moments after it hit there was chaos.

What a frightening thing to have happen! 1 dead, may G*D be merciful to the family, several injured, subway service out, people evacuated from their apartments. What a mess.
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

My brother Jordan is just fine ladies. Thanks for your prayers! He also worked 2 or 3 days a week in the WTC prior to 9-11 and wasn't there that day. He's using up MY luck! LOL!

Stuff like this goes on in New York all the time, unfortunatly. I was near a man-hole cover that blew once when I was working with my construction union in the 80s. It was on the corner of 42nd. St. and Sixth Ave. The thing blew off like a pot lid. I wasn't hurt but my ears were ringing for a while! J"Mac.
