New York Building Explodes And Collapses Injuring 15 And Killing At least 1.

Sup Travellers?! I've got some horrible news for you coming out of Harlem New York. According to reports from ABC News an explosion brought down a five-story building near Park Avenue and 116th Street about 9:30am, sending out thick plumes of smoke for blocks. An adjacent building was also severely damaged by the explosion and collapsed as well. At least one person is dead and at least 15 people injured. These numbers are expected to change.

The cause of the explosion has yet to be determined but the explosion was so big that it blew out the windows of nearby buildings. Authorities aren't jumping to conclusions until more investigations are done. However Con Edison tweeted that it was responding to a report of a gas odor in the area just before the explosion occurred. So it could have been caused by a gas leak but investigations are continuing. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
