15th Street Explodes

Had a bit of excitement at 15th & L St today here in D.C. as a series of grinding explosions rumbled from underground, cutting power to the building next door and spewing foul black and orange smoke into the street.

Here’s a view from an hour later, as the street is still closed off and firefighters have climbed down into the hole, despite a new series of explosions just fifteen minutes ago. The Washington Post headquarters is the tan building on the left.
