The American Red Cross will provide emotional healthcare to residents affected by an explosion on the southeast side.
It happened near Stop 11 and Sherman Drive just after 11 p.m. Saturday. At least two people were killed and seven others were injured.
More than 200 residents were evacuated from their homes. Some two dozen homes were damaged by the blast.
Indianapolis Homeland Security Chief Gary Coons said, "all indicators" point in the direction of a natural gas leak as the likely cause. Because the house where the explosion occurred was unoccupied all day, Coons said there would have been no one home to smell leaking gas.
Affected individuals and their families in need of these services should contact the American Red Cross of Greater Indianapolis at 317-684-1441. Individuals wishing to make a financial contribution to this and future Indiana disasters should donate online.
