Let's hope we can have a normal occurrence instead of the usual "Terrorism" angle before all the facts are in.

And I also hope we have absolutely no loss of life this time round. Too much these days.

Peace

Thats usually enough to let you know that something is happening. Whether that be a fire/accident/manhunt/disasters it just depends. I have to do my own searching to find out whats going on usually.

And yea thats public listeners.
This channel currently has 20k+ listeners atm.

For this area I would not think terrorism at all. If it were some major building/news office or something like that I would likely go straight to terrorism. This seems more like what the other posters earlier stated.....gas line.

Either way, pretty big news for a building to just collapse in NY.

I was thinking it was more likely gas lines disrupted inside the building from an unpermitted structural modification or something. Who knows what old ratty pipes are running inside the walls. Old capped stubs from yesteryear and that kind of thing.


Fair enough, I'm not knowledgeable in those areas. I don't like natural gas and only do electrical.

It wouldn't be a gas pipe in the street that has caused this. A building like this would require a large boiler or several smaller boilers, all of which is fed through 25mm to 50mm pipes which run through the building. If one of those ruptures or is in fact punctured, it only take a spark to set off an explosion.


Consider me educated.

Because it is a different type of structure form the ground up.

Modern cars don't crash like modern trucks, why? Because they have completely different structures that act as completely different structures.

This is sad. The stores in both of those buildings are pretty well populated. One of them is a sushi place called Sushi Park and the other is a specialty french fries shop called Pommes Frites. Both have 5 floors of residences on top of them.

Yes, both buildings are prewar.

Pretty much the whole of downtown Manhattan smells right now.

From what I'm hearing there's at least 1 victim deceased...

the fire is on 2nd avenue and 7th street. I'm about 25 blocks north, and 5 avenues west. Distance wise, I'd say it's just short of 2 miles from here.

Are you joking ?

Looking at the buildings and the road itself on Street View, I'd say not much has been done to the gas lines, water lines, or any other infrastructure in that area in awhile. The road looks torn to bits. I'd say if they were working on any pipes, they'd have to tear up the road and repave. I'm not an expert, though, and I'm also sure NY streets get beat up pretty quickly.


It says in the link that labourers have said they were working on gas lines in the building.

"A diner who was eating at the Sushi Park restaurant at 121 Second Ave. told cops he heard an explosion inside the kitchen there, and day laborers said they had been working on a gas line there, a source said."

Do you know the building? As in been to it or by it? If so, what's your take on the cause of this? Gas?

I saw somewhere that there was a work stoppage order in place, due to a gas leak.

My office, 20th floor, now reeks from the fire.

Gotcha. Never seen a building fire or collapse in person myself. Crazy that there is so much smoke it is making your building stink 2 miles away And 20 floors up. Are you able to see it from your office at all? curious as to how many FDNY trucks responded with a 7 alarm fire.

No, i was expecting smooth collapse with fires like this.

over 200 firefighters is what they're reporting.

I've seen two buildings collapse and would rather I never see another again.

Can't see anything. There's a tall building across the street, blocking my view in that direction.

Very odd considering weather reports winds out of the Northwest in NYC.
