what's the latest on those injured yeah I can't good evening when rescuers arrived here yesterday they found 23 people wounded from pieces of glass metal and debris thrown hundreds of yards in every direction tonight all but two are out of your nearby hospitals as investigators try to zero in on what caused this blast tonight new images captured the astounding aftermath a South Florida shopping center unrecognizable building afloat from a blast many couldn't believe they survived the windows are shattering and falling a lot of dust all over the place the fire sprinklers are coming on fire alarm is going off people are running everywhere fire crews arrived to find the wounded walking through a massive debris field a scary deja vu for deputy chief Joel Gordon you're a New York guy when you roll upon this did you have a deeper fear I had a few flashbacks how they've been to that Gordon says it appears the explosion centered around a pizza shop that's been closed for months the same area where a worker noticed the sin of gas just minutes before the blast I had told the manager about it and he came over he said he didn't smell guys when he started to smell guys know what's causing it then is when the explosion despite finding ruptured gas lines investigators say the cause is still unknown crews spent today combing through debris searching for anything that could lead to answers is there any evidence that would show this was intentional right now at this point it's too early to tell too early to tell with any of that tonight two of the 23 people injured remain in nearby hospitals seriously hurt but both expected to survive our hearts go out to them but what it could have potentially been would have been much much worse so it's nothing short of a miracle that we walked away with as few injuries as we have and tonight the cleanup process hasn't even begun and investigators do tell me that is by design as any piece of debris could bring them closer to finding the cause Kate Morgan Chesky thank you tonight a billionaire once connected with some of the most powerful figures in the world arrested after flying in from Paris expected to face federal charges

Florida homes these young girls who were at 13 14 and 15 thought essentially that they were gonna be going there to get paid to give him a massage and instead what he did was he pressed them further and further each time to have sexual and intimate relations with him and and by the way with other people Epstein's attorney declined to comment the Miami Herald has reported in depth on the case with some of Epstein's alleged victims going on the record I'm really really sad that I brought other girls my age and even younger into a world that they should have never been introduced to Epstein avoided federal sex trafficking charges and a possible life sentence after a controversial 2008 plea deal instead he served 13 months and registered as a sex offender after pleading guilty in state court to soliciting a single underage victim that deal was put together by Epstein's lawyers and former Miami US Attorney Alexander Acosta who is now president Trump's Labor Secretary and has

company officials set to go into a second day tomorrow the company moving quickly to quiet the controversy that has lit up social media with the hashtag dumped Starbucks it all started on July 4th when six Tempe police officers were enjoying their drinks at this Starbucks that's when one of the employees said that a customer was uncomfortable with their present and asked them to move from their line of sight the cops instead deciding to leave nobody should be asked to leave if all they're doing is just having a cup of coffee I think it's valid to a degree to be afraid because you don't know who's good and who's not the Tempe officers Association at first called the situation disheartening and offensive but today saying they hope this can be a learning opportunity we can move forward and connect to our community and hopefully people will feel safe around law enforcement because that's why we got into this job it's not the first time the company has come under fire in this 2018 viral

home stores and a big part of the problem says bear expert Randi Gravette they're incredible sense of smell their sense of smell is the greatest that they have a bear can smell up to 18 miles away

  1. Yeah, trump and Clinton had some fun at the Epstein House. What!?There billionaires. So when is it law the 12-14 year old girls give massages. Oohh! I almost forgot! It's mom and dad idea! Lol! So those girls lied about there age. Did any of the girls every say, "I'm 13!"? Think not. Why? Because the girls will lose their chance for thousands of dollars. Think of a 13 with $3,000! That's like $1,000,000 in their mind. I'm done. Not taking sides. Just know a bunch of grown up kids is struggling too. And they need more money.

  2. Follow the cracks of the earthquake to the coast line. It might not be seeable on the surface. But I'm sure its under. For every break, theres always a start.

  3. Its a miracle no one was killed in that mall explosion, those people probably thought it was a bomb. Unbelieveable that bear opened the door.

  4. Everyone living in California better find somewhere else to live, because the big one is due and its coming

  5. their editorial decisions are based entirely upon whatever amateur videos they acquire lol. might as well watch tosh.0

  6. Wtf they thought just a massage thags crazy first whu a 15 doing this.i have kids and never would this be ok.plus hes a registerdsex offender which is public knowledge.so where r the parents.and honest they should be charged w child endangerment like rhe rest of us would.

  7. Not a mystery what happenes n fl.was a gas line that blew when they were fixing the bumding next door..yall just reportes this the other day.do the media not communicate?

  8. If you see that cop down in Florida I'd stay away from him..he seems to attract explosions. If I were him I think Id be pretty shaken up.

  9. Police should be nowhere around regular citizens unless they're called and especially not on our celebration of freedom day!

  10. The real problem is that bad cops have made people feel uncomfortable around all police, which is sad. It is up to the police departments around the country to restore the valor and honor of the institution of the police.
