Jalopnik has an amazing first person account of yesterday’s Manhattan steam explosion. Read about it here.

Steam Explosion

Here is an excerpt:

That not-so-long six block walk to the studio gave me time to call friends, family and loved ones to explain that I was fine but I didn’t know what was happening. Well, at least I did that for the first two blocks and then phone calls became impossible as the cell towers became jammed with frantic calls from mothers to children, men to wives and all other forms of familial or non-familial relationships. That gave me four blocks to contemplate the weirdest part of the whole experience for me — the fact that the road, something I’d always taken for granted, could possibly explode.
