Boom !! A gas leak caused an explosion that leveled two apartment buildings in Harlem, New York yesterday. The blast killed at least three people and injured at least two dozen more. There are also nine people missing in the rubble. The smell of gas was detectable the night before but seemed to go away as the evening progressed. The smell returned in force during the morning hours and Con Edison was called by residents. Con Edison told people to leave the building and those that did were saved. Con Edison crews arrived minutes after the blast. The National Transportation Safety Board oversees pipeline safety and they are looking into the situation.
