Developing Story: Gas Odor Spreading Throughout Manhattan

CNN and New York news outlets are reporting a strong natural gas smell throughout Manhattan and northern New Jersey. At this time, the source of the smell has yet to be found:

"Con Edison, the Fire Department and multiple city agencies are investigating the source of a natural gas odor throughout Manhattan this morning.

Hundreds of reports of the smell began flooding the 911 system around 9 a.m. in parts of Manhattan and New Jersey."


Some buildings throughout the city have being evacuated, and "PATH train service has been suspended between Hoboken and 33rd Street and service between Journal Square and 33rd Street."

Updates to come.
