My first thoughts were that this is an act of terrorism  -- let's keep letting them pour over the border.  This is about 5 miles from where we went to evacuate from hurricane Irama.

Up to 20 injured after gas explosion near LA Fitness in Florida

Up to 20 people have been injured in a gas explosion at a shopping center in Plantation, Florida on Saturday.

Multiple storefronts were impacted by the blast, with 15-20 injured, including two seriously, according to Plantation Fire Rescue spokesman, Joel Gordon.

As of a 1:30 p.m. press conference, no deaths were reported.

The building where the explosion occurred was completely destroyed and an LA Fitness nearby sustained heavy damage caused by the blast, with debris and glass filling the nearby parking lot.

Fire departments from Plantation, Davie, Lauderhill, Coral Springs, as well as Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue have all been called to the scene............

"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page
