Surveillance Video of New York City Explosion

An explosion occurred at Chelsea, Manhattan, injuring at least 29 people on a Saturday night.

The explosion which happened at around 8:30 PM at the 23rd Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues was said to be an international act, and is not related to terrorism.

A possible secondary device was located a few blocks away on 27th Street, between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue, but was then removed by authorities.

Police said the device was to be detonated at the NYPD’s firing range in the Bronx.

According to ABC News, the mayor said the Chelsea explosion has no apparent connection to the explosive device that detonated in Seaside Park, New Jersey, Saturday morning. Nobody was injured in the New Jersey incident, which occurred at a time when a 5k run to benefit U.S. Marines and sailors was scheduled, but the race was delayed because so many runners had signed up.

Below is the surveillance video which shows the incident, credit to ABC News.

Reuters reported that a record-breaking cold gripped the eastern United States while an icy winter storm crippled the nation’s central states and then plowed into the mid-Atlantic, dumping snow and forcing federal offices in Washington, D.C. to close on Tuesday.

It was reported that the new storm will be followed by another arctic front, bringing frigid cold to the eastern United States by Thursday or Friday.

In Photos: Mass Transit Damaged By Superstorm Sandy

Superstorm Sandy had caused huge damages to all of the mass transit systems especially in New York City and New Jersey.

The New York City’s subway system will be reopened on Thursday but it will be offering only limited services.

The subways:

One of the biggest questions now is who will pay for the extensive damage to municipal infrastructure, subway tunnels, train tracks, electrical transformers, coastal boardwalks and piers, that Sandy left behind along the East Coast.

Andrew Cuomo announced limited subway service will resume on Thursday. (AP Photo/Metropolitan Transportation Authority)

Battered by a record storm surge of nearly 14 feet of water, large sections of New York City remained submerged under several feet of water.

Subway and commuter tunnels under New York City, which carry several million riders a day, were under several feet of water.

At least 45 people were killed in nine states.

There was a huge fire that destroyed houses in the flooded  Breezy Point and Belle Harbor, blizzards hit Appalachia, no power for millions, a storm surge up to 14 feet and rain that caused flooding.

Sandy aftermath photos remind me of the March 2011 Japan tsunami aftermath.

Fire department spokesperson said 110 homes burned to the ground and another 20 were damaged by fire spread by Sandy’s near-hurricane force winds in Breezy Point.

Like Breezy Point, Belle Harbor is a private beach community in the Rockaway area, a narrow spit of land barely above sea level that thrusts into the Atlantic Ocean southwest of John F. Kennedy International Airport.

The area had been extensively flooded by Sandy’s record storm surge, which made it very hard for the firefighters who sped to the scene.

Superstorm Sandy made landfall at 8 p.m. just south of Atlantic City, about 120 miles southwest of Manhattan which was already mostly under water while its world-famous Boardwalk was washed away earlier in the day.

It slammed into the New Jersey coastline with 80 mph winds Monday night and hurled an unprecedented 13-foot surge of seawater at New York City.

At least 10 U.S. deaths and one death in Canada were blamed on the storm.

It was a very big storm that an AccuWeather meteorologist said Sandy “is unfolding as the Northeast’s Katrina”.

Authorities reported a record surge more than 13 feet high at the Battery at the southern tip of Manhattan, from the storm and high tide combined.

The center the storm, a combination of Sandy, a wintry system from the West and cold air streaming from the Arctic, threatened to knock out the underground network of power, phone and high-speed Internet lines that are the lifeblood of America’s financial capital.

The New York Daily News reported that water was six feet deep outside its offices in lower Manhattan.

City officials evacuated neighbors of a 90-story super luxury apartment building under construction after its crane partially collapsed in high winds, prompting fears the entire rig could crash to the ground.

Serious flooding was also reported miles north in Greenwich Village and Chelsea.

The facade of a four-story Manhattan building in the Chelsea neighborhood crumbled and collapsed suddenly, leaving the lights, couches, cabinets and desks inside visible from the street.

No one was hurt, although some of the falling debris hit a car.
