Chaos ensues in Florida as massive explosion strikes shopping center

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Florida as they begin to sort through this incident. 

While the west coast is experiencing a harrowing series of earthquakes that have persisted since Independence Day, the fine people of Florida are being rocked as well.

Hours ago, a massive explosion shattered the tranquility of a Saturday morning shopping spree in Plantation, Florida.

The explosion happened around noon at The Fountains, a shopping center in Plantation, a suburb in Broward County, north of Miami.

Video from the scene appears to show windows blown out of an LA Fitness gym and wreckage scattered across the ground.

The explosion sent large pieces of debris about 100 yards across the street, the Associated Press reported.

Images of the scene were devastating, with locals calling the damage “apocalyptic”.

Authorities have indicated that they believe the explosion was caused a natural gas accident.

Multiple “patients” have been reported from the harrowing scene.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Florida as they begin to sort through this incident.
