  1. Huge Explosion Levels Two NYC Buildings

    At least three people are dead and two dozen injured after two buildings collapsed in East Harlem, following an explosion triggered by a gas leak. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called the situation a “tragedy of the worst kind because there was no indication in time to save people.” The blast, which blew out windows in surrounding buildings and caused debris to fall onto nearby streets, leveled the five-story residential buildings. Search-and-rescue efforts continue to find the missing.
