Bozeman Blow Up

I don't like reporting bad news but this was just overwhelming. I live in a fairly quiet little town. But this morning there was a huge gas explosion right on Main Street! They are saying no one was hurt or killed. The explosion literally blew cars right off the street! My two sons were down there plowing snow on their 4-wheelers and felt it...thought it was an earthquake! Here's before and after photos... it's still burning! We went down to see it but had to leave because the gas fumes are so bad! Hopefully I'll be back later with a happy post!
UPDATE: Still a very horrible event. As of Friday they have 1 person reported as missing - and have not been able to sort through the rubble as yet to look for anyone - there is gas still leaking. 2nd UPDATE: Unfortunately one person was killed, though it could have been so much worse. It happened before many of the downtown businesses were open for the day. Go here for more photos and stories.
