Greenwood Neighborhood Explosion and Relief Efforts

Investigators stands amid the rubble of Wednesday's explosion in the Greenwood neighborhood.  Debris can be seen on the rooftop of the building behind it.  Photographed Wednesday, March 9, 2016.  (Dean Rutz / The Seattle Times)Several weeks ago, a devastating natural-gas explosion shook the Greenwood neighborhood with a force that registered on seismometers 820 feet away. In total, the explosion destroyed three businesses, impacted or damaged 33 others, and injured nine firefighters. Total damages are estimated to be around $3 million.

Seattle Mayor Ed Murray says “it’s going to take a lot of work to help these businesses become vibrant and vital again, but we are committed to that as a city.”  

Resident and small business relief funds continue to pour in from around the city, at last count totaling $150,000.
