OT - I'm so worried!

I'm not sure if you've heard, but in Harlem Manhattan today there was a major gas explosion that resulted in 2 5-story building collapses. 3 confirmed dead, 70 injured and several still missing. I've been trying to get ahold of my little brother who lives in Harlem since he is attending Columbia University for his Masters degree. He is notorious for not charging his cell phone, so I'm hoping he just hasn't been able to contact anyone because of it. I'm just worried sick...

I understand Shannon. I've got your brother in my prayers and hope he calls you soon. Please keep us updated.

Do you know his address? The article I read told the exact two buildings street addresses involved so you could at least find out if it was near him or not.

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I was really getting concerned as it had been hours of us trying to reach my brother. Thankfully I just spoke with him and he is ok. The explosion was about 2 blocks away from his house, he had been at home studying when it happened and he thought it was an earth quake. My thoughts go out to all the families affected by the collapse.

 Glad to hear you got ahold of your brother! I would've have been a nervous wreck too.
