Bob and Avril Rubin were sound asleep in their fourth-floor unit in the Sun and Surf condominium when it happened.
“It sounded like a bomb went off,” Avril Rubin said. “I thought the balcony collapsed. That’s how loud it was.”
Her husband said he thought it was a transformer blowing.
“I was asleep and it woke me right up,” he said. “Then the fire alarm went off and we all evacuated.”
The condominium, at 130 Sunrise Ave., was rocked by an explosion in the garage around 5:34 a.m. Thursday. The explosion ripped apart a manhole, and sent its cover and brick pavers flying. Several cars were damaged.
