Watch This New Jersey Home Get Pulverized By a Gas Leak Explosion

If you thought your late night run to Taco Bell produced quite the explosion, wait until you see this.

According to NBC Philadelphia, a gas leak resulted in a massive blast that “disintegrated” a New Jersey home Tuesday morning, and the entire thing was captured by a police vehicle’s dashcam.

The blast occurred in the Cedar Run neighborhood of Stafford Township about 90 minutes after the gas leak was first reported. The explosion was so powerful that it could be felt one mile away. It shook homes in all directions and even blew out the windows of at least one neighboring residence.

“My windows blew out of my house, and I dropped, and I covered my daughter,” Melissa Lewis said. “I stood up, and I heard them screaming outside, and there were people being taken to the ambulance.”

Thankfully, no one was killed by the blast, but 15 people were injured, including one gas worker who needed to be revived on the scene.

Officials said gas has already been restored to some homes, but we think crashing at a friend’s house for a week or two doesn’t sound like a bad idea.
