Question: Major Explosion in Manhattan
Telephone call with client | 7/18/2007 | RinaseaofD's

Posted on 07/18/2007 3:01:43 PM PDT by RinaseaofDs

I just hung up with a client located on the E40's in Manhattan. Tons of sirens to the point where he felt compelled to check on what was up.

He came back to the phone and said there had just been a massive explosion near their building, and that they were evacuating.

Any NYC Freepers have any information on this? Happened at 6 PM EDT or there abouts.

May be terrorism, may not be.

Remember, New York has more than its share of gas explosions due to the ancient gas infrastructure.

I've never used that particular excuse to get a salesman off the phone, but it's not bad! ;~)

I'm on national news channels... nothing reported yet.

WHOA. Just looked north up past the Empire state. Looks like in the east 40s there is a HUGE cloud of billowing something.

We will have to wait & see what is really happening. It could be just an accident of some sort.

If you have to go check whether there has been a massive explosion, how massive can it be?
