"Boom." That's how the founder and co-owner of the G&O Family Cyclery described the explosion that ripped apart a block of businesses in Seattle in the early hours of this morning. David "Davey Oil" Giugliano took to Twitter to express his shock at seeing the damage to his business, and the complete destruction of two others, including a coffee shop.
News reports from the scene say it's probable that the whole block will have to be levelled, including G&O Family Cyclery.
The suspected gas explosion occurred at around 2 a.m.
