Con Ed Identifies Cause Of Manhattan Explosion

Posted by


ELECTRICAL SERVICE LINE LED TO THE EXPLOSION THAT RATTLED A SECTION OF THE UPPER WEST SIDE. CREWS HAVE BEEN WORKING THROUGH THE NIGHT TO MAKE REPAIRS. THE BLAST YESTERDAY AFTERNOON BLEW OUT STORE FRONT WINDOWS FORCING EVACUATIONS. THE LINE LEADING FROM THE STREET TO THE CUSTOMER FAILED AND IMPACTED A GAS LINE THAT SET OFF THAT EXPLOSION. IT SMELLED VERY CHEMICALLY. LIKE I HAD TO HOLD MY BREATH AS I WAS WALKING INTO EQUINOX. I PROBABLY WASN’T IN THE BUILDING FOR FIVE MINUTES WHEN THE ALARMS WENT OFF. NO ONE WAS HURT. NINE BUILDINGS ARE STILL
