I have been looking on the net for details about this, there really is a lack of information, exepct for the fact that this is not terrorism.
We aren't sure of the type of explosition, but we are sure that it wasnt terrorism.
A fourty foot hole is huge, there are reports that buildings shook, but again, this can't be terrorism...
Will we ever know the whole story behing this, not a chance, is it torrism, mabye...
Remember VT, the guy had Abraham Axe on his arm, an Islamic Refrence, but no, not a chance that this could be terror, Al_quadia cant be speading thier power into the US, no, turn the other way and watch TV, thats the new AMERICAN way.

I was just there when it happened. Just a steam pipe for sure. Cop told me that it is caused by a condition in the pipe called a water hammer. Condensation builds up and causes the pipe to burst.
It was nuts though.

Also, whats up with all the NYPD and FDNY running around without gas masks even though they were all issued them after 9/11/01?
