If you're a subscriber of our website or any local news publication, then you've heard about the tragic events on Wednesday, March 10th. Normally we'd wait till tomorrow for an event article. But given the circumstances, we think this important.

For those not up to speed
SEATTLE (AP) — Shop owners on Wednesday inspected walls that were ripped to shreds by an early morning natural gas explosion in Seattle and marveled that the blast had caused no serious injuries.

Crews were responding to reports of a gas leak when the explosion occurred about 1:40 a.m. along a main thoroughfare in a neighborhood north of downtown.

"The most important thing is that no one died and this happened at two in the morning and not two in the afternoon," said Chris Maykut, owner of Chaco Canyon Organic Café. "If it had happened at two in the afternoon, things would be really bad right now."

As expected, local businesses and organizations are pitching-in to assist the affected businesses - Mr. Gyro, Neptune Coffee, Quick Stop, and G&O Family Cyclery - as well as local businesses damaged by shrapnel from the explosion. In light of our previous story, we're updating the information for those who wish to donate via a participating brewery or alehouse.
