Gas (LPG or LNG) is a common commodity in a modern household. It is used primarily for cooking or heating. The New York building explosion is another tragedy caused by this common household commodity.It is similar to the Serendra gas leak explosion in the Philippines.
Reports said that a resident in a nearby building smell gas shortly before the explosion. Areas around the site were reported to be littered with broken glass from shattered windows. The blast scattered debris destroyed adjoining five-storey building.
Gas leak monitors should be a imposed to be installed on households having gas installations.
