Apparently a transformer exploded, no suspicious activity involved according to the FBI.

Corner of 43rd and Lexington.

Hope no one's been hurt.

I'm watching CNN which reports that a steam pipe burst, causing a transformer to explode. They report that 3 people are hospitalized with injuries.

Now it is up to 12 injured, no fatalities, thank goodness

Boy, did I have a heart attack when I looked north from 23rd Street and saw all of that smoke. I thought the worst, what can I tell you.

I think everyone would have thought the worst. I live on the other side of the world and my stomach turned at the thought of it.

All the best to all you Noo Yorkers, see you in 43 days.

I' m sure it was very scary especially with what Chertoff has been saying lately. Glad to hear that no one was killed and hope that none of the injured were seriously hurt.

Chertoff is head of Homeland Security and he has been saying that he has a gut feeling that there will be another attack on US soil this summer. Let's hope he is very wrong!
