The gas explosion has devastated the northwest Baltimore neighborhood of Reisterstown Station that is now strewn with glass and other rubble.

“It’s a disaster. It’s a mess. It’s unbelievable,” said Diane Glover, who lives across the street. Her windows where shattered and her front door was blown open.

“I’m still shaken up,” she said hours later.

Seven people were hospitalized, while a woman was pronounced dead at the scene, the department said on its Twitter page.

Rescuers were painstakingly going through the rubble by hand, prepared to work into the night.
