Body Found In Kansas City Rubble

Search crews found a body in the rubble of the Kansas City, Mo., restaurant that exploded last night. The natural-gas detonation at JJ's injured at least 15 other people, at least four critically, and sent flames shooting above the buildings of the downtown shopping district. “It sounded like thunder, but it felt like an earthquake,” said witness Tracy Truitt. Due to the smell of natural gas at the restaurant earlier in the evening, JJ’s employees had been canceling reservations—causing the restaurant to be relatively empty when the explosion happened.
