Gas Explosion and Speed of Recovery

Updated June 27, 2018

Two years ago, a townhouse in Columbia was devastated when a gas leak led to an explosion. A few days later I went over and got these before rebuilding back images.

Recent hurricane disasters got me to think about a local disaster. What is the speed of recovery from a small-scale disaster?

Before Rebuilding

The explosion, about 7 p.m., destroyed 2 townhouses completely and damaged several more considerably. Pieces of debris still littered the neighborhood.
