At least one person is dead and five others are missing from three homes after a natural gas explosion this morning in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
The fire that resulted from the explosion consumed an entire row of homes. Eight houses were destroyed and another 16 damaged. 500 to 600 people have been evacuated, including elderly residents of nearby high rise.
“God, we pray for those impacted by the explosion in Allentown. Bring healing to the injured. Bring comfort to those who have lost loved ones. Bring peace to those who have been displaced and have lost their homes. You do not cause disaster, but you can use pain to guide us to you. Work in this tragedy. In Jesus…”
