Explosion reported in Times Square, New York


Underground explosion shakes downtown New York just after Super Bowl

By John Vibes

NEW YORK (INTELLIHUB) — Manhattan residents were reporting a loud explosion that shook the ground and could be heard from blocks away.  Luckily, no deaths or injuries have been reported so far.

The first reports of the explosion occurred somewhere between 10pm and 11pm late Sunday night, just following the Super Bowl, which brought many tourists to the city for the weekend.

Police and government agents have made the city even more of a police state than it usually is during the week of the Super Bowl, apparently due to concerns of terrorism.

An hour after the explosion hundreds of posts and pictures can be found on twitter, but there is oddly no official report from the mainstream media.

Police and firefighters are on the scene and are claiming that this explosion is the result of an underground gas leak.

Pictures on twitter show streets being shut down by emergency vehicles and manhole covers destroyed and blown off the street.
