Things returned to normal on the East Side of Manhattan on Sunday, after a massive manhole explosion rocked the area Saturday night

Emergency crews responded to 50th street between First and Second Avenues around 9 p.m. Saturday.

Police say a parked car parked on top of the manhole was damaged and some nearby windows were shattered.

Witnesses said the explosion shook nearby buildings.

"It was a really loud, like, deep, bang, just, boom. Like I said, it kind of vibrated my room a little bit. The light flickered for a moment," said one witness.

No power outages and no injuries were reported. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
