MAYOR BRIEFS REPORTERS AT BLAST SCENE
A "tragedy of the worst kind." That's Mayor de Blasio's description of an explosion that brought down two buildings - one a piano store with apartments overhead - the other a church with apartments above. Caused, the mayor said, by a gas leak reported just 15 minutes before the blast. Con Ed crews were almost on the scene when it happened. As of this writing, two women dead, 18 injured, "a number" of people missing.
