New York City was shocked early this morning after Roosevelt Island experienced ‘three booms and shakes’ that shook the buildings and startled the residents. Several citizens confused the blasts with an earthquake. Firefighters rushed to the scene at Main Street, near the Roosevelt Island Bridge & Tram, around 6 am on Tuesday, January 2. The FDNY also received calls from the Upper East Side and Astoria, Queens. The cause of the explosions is still under investigation. Many parts of Roosevelt Island reported power outages after the blasts. Several videos of the New York blast have surfaced on social media that showed panic among the residents and buildings shaking after the explosions.
