5 critical injuries
3 in UCSD burn center (sounds like 3 of those 5)
and 8 others injured (varying degree)

Still saying 13 total at hospitals.

Fire dept guy says that they are amazed that there were not more injuries and AMAZED that the injuries were not far more serious given the strength and degree of the explosion.

The response was incredible and incredibly fast per all those on scene that are talking.

There will be a presser at 4:30 local time but again saying it’s definitely NOT terrorism and is related to what’s going on at the construction site.

There had been reports of a gas leak on the site prior to the explosion and they were trying to find the source of the leak and then the explosion happened.

There were people ACTIVELY looking for the source of the leak right before it happened. It took place in an extremely heavily fortified room with mechanical equipment which may have helped limit the extent of the injuries.
