...this belongs in the Terrorism section, but I'm glad you put it here first. This is a disturbing to say the least. Keep us posted.

That Facebook link says "right now it's an exploded dumpster", for them to declare major emergency it must be multiple casualties though.

A dumpster would be an easy place to hide some sort of device. If said dumpster is beside a busy street or heavily frequented location, I could see where it could cause numerous casualties. Let us hope for a good outcome here.

#BREAKING Other sources say lots of utility work in area. #Chelsea #Manhattan #FDNY
Could be gas explosion.
