I was checking my Twitter network and saw this MMDA twit and they reported that there's an aircon bus exploded between Ayala and Buendia in EDSA today, I checked some news and saw that MMDA twit only posted two related news, I started to listen on the radio and tuned in to DzBB and heard a live news report on the bus explosion.

I immediately posted this news on my Plurk, Twitter and Facebook network to let everyone know what's happening outside. The DzBB announcer talked to their correspondent and interviewed a passenger who survived with no wounds at the bus explosion. The passenger guy said that the explosion came from the middle part of the bus, 6 seats before the driver's seat and they didn't notice if there's a passenger board the bus carrying big cases or bags, but the passenger guy said that most passengers are carrying back packs and they didn't noticed because they are watching TV inside the bus. The incident happened at around 2pm. News came in at around 2:20pm.

Then a report came in and said that 10 people got injured on the explosion and one person lost its leg, and then follow up report came in and said that 2 people died on the scene. The bus exploded on the North lane near the loading area of bus in EDSA.

After some minutes, MMDA twit some pics of the bus

as of now the authorities are investigating if its a bomb, or what kind of bomb it is, how powerful it is, or is it an act of terrorism. This is a sad news, I was about to leave home and head to Makati, but I need to delay for awhile and monitor some news about the bus explosion. I'm still at shock after hearing this news yesterday about the bombing in Moscow airport
