    Fox News has a picture of a dumpster which the explosive possibly was in.

    Fox News - FDNY - up to 15 injured no word on severity.

    Yes we have been discussing it here http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...September-2016

    I wonder if there is any link.

    Fox News - FDNY - 25 people injured, 2 civilians on street

    "Police confirmed they were called to an incident at the intersection of 23rd Street and Sixth Avenue. An FDNY spokesman said first responders arrived at the scene at about 8:30 p.m.

    The New York Post reported that a dumpster blew up, blowing out some of the windows of a nearby residence for the blind.

    According to Reuters, at least three people were taken from the scene in ambulances."

    Update - CNN - It doesn't appear to be life threatening injuries and gas explosion ruled out

    Watching Fox News right now.... the Judge was absolutely horrible... just "ugghhhh.... ummmmm.... about every 5 seconds"

    She also said a dumpster that was mangled (about the size of 3 men) was blown to pieces...

    CNN - believe cause of explosion is an IED in or near a dumpster. The explosion in NJ was a pipe bomb.

    I'm glad he is ok it must be very scary for this to happen on your own doorstep. I hope and pray this is not going to be repeated if terrorism - no evidence of that yet.
