We have updated news out of Manhattan, but all of it is sad.
As we reported earlier, a possible gas leak caused a huge explosion in East Harlem on Wednesday and basically destroyed two buildings.
According to the latest reports, three people were killed, at least 69 were injured, and others are still missing.
Responders and investigators are working around the clock at the scene of the horrific event and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has released a statement.
“This is a tragedy of the worse kind because there was no indication in time to save people. There will be a search through the rubble of the building once the fire has been put out.”
Mayor de Blasio wasn't the only politician to speak out about the tragedy.
President Barack Obama's White House issued this statement:
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone impacted by this incident"
Former President Bill Clinton, a local, tweeted out his condolences.
My heart goes out to our neighbors in Harlem affected by today’s explosion. To the families of those who were lost, my prayers are with you.
— Bill Clinton (@billclinton) March 12, 2014
Ugh! This whole situation is so heartbreaking!
