manhattan-explosionA dozen people are unaccounted for and at least two are dead following a massive explosion in New York’s Harlem this morning. The explosion and collapse of two buildings at 1644-1646 Park Avenue were apparently caused by a gas leak, which was reported 15 minutes prior to the explosion.

Crews arrived after the disaster. At least 18 were reported injured. Metro-North commuter trains in the area have been stopped due to debris on the tracks.

“This is a tragedy of the worst kind because there was no indication in time to save people,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
