Manholes Blew Up In Albany Yesterday
Like literally, manholes opened up on Friday due to an underground explosion.
In the area of Henry Johnson Boulevard around midnight on Thursday, a fire had broken out beneath the ground which caused an explosion. According to CBS 6 this explosion caused a couple of manhole covers to open up. Many residents heard the explosion that caused some concern. It awoke them and sounded like a car crash one witness explained.
"I was dead asleep and then all of a sudden I heard this huge bang! And it sounded like a car crash at first, and I didn't think anything of it, I just got up and looked out the window. And then there was another huge bang," Kieran Murphy recalled. - CBS 6
I would have freaked out. Many did. From what I heard on my way home listening to our traffic reporter, it seemed the issue carried on throughout the day. Henry Johnson Boulevard was closed yesterday afternoon too.
