Explosions in Washington, DC are nothing new in film and television. And manhole covers may explode in the nation's capital on occasion. But they may happen a lot more often, with 6,000 natural gas leaks under the District's roads, according to a new study by Boston University and Duke University. At least 12 of those leaks are potential explosive. But not much is being done to fix the city's aging infrastructure. RT's Perianne Boring sits down with Shadow Sen. Paul Strauss (D-DC) to find out why it's so hard for DC to fix its explosive issues.
