May I add that I told my family that is was not a residential gas leak explosion which all thought it was. As time goes on, what was it? The neighbors see homeland security et all and now it is a white van?
Yeah, a furnace explosion does not make over 21 homes in the neighborhood blocks away uninhabitable. From reading the comments in the first few days even the gas company was almost immediately sure it had nothing to do with the gas or the furnace. The damage was was just way too extensive, and over too widespread an area.
