Explosion Rocks Southside

Details are still emerging about what happened exactly shortly after 11:00 p.m. Saturday in the Richmond Hill neighborhood immediately north of Smock Golf Course in Perry Township.

What is clear is some sort of explosion rocked the area.  The cause is not yet known.  Two fatalities, so far, are linked to this blast.

This explosion reminds me so much of the one that happened on Indy's Northside 15 years ago in 1997.  A gas line was damaged during construction and the resulting explosion leveled six homes, damaged countless others, and caused major damage.  One lady was killed in that explosion.  

If you wish to help the victims, follow the American Red Cross link at the top left of the blog.

My thoughts are with all the families affected by this tragedy.
