Still trying to recover from a devastating tornado that ripped through the area last year, the last thing the city needed was another disaster.
It got one anyway.
The strip club Scores was just about vaporized in the explosion, which left a vacant lot where once the building stood. Thankfully, no one was inside the building itself and the area had already been evacuated prior to the explosion. Still, as of Saturday afternoon the injury toll was reportedly up to 21 people, including firefighters, police, and gas company personnel.
Last night I visited the scene and got whatever photos I could in the darkened streets. (See those images here.) On Saturday, I again trekked out to the scene to gather more photos. Those images are below, along with a short, 2-minute video I put together from clips I took as I went along.
