UPDATE 9:41 AM EST -- VIDEO OF THE BLAST -- "ISIS-INSPIRED ATTACK" -- EXPLOSION AT NYC BUS TERMINAL IN TIMES SQUARE

UPDATED 9:41 AM EST -- I have video of the detonation (see bottom of story) -- A LOUD blast has been heard inside a New York bus terminal with reports of a stampede as people rushed from the area.

Police have said they are responding to reports of an “explosion” at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, close to Times Square, in Manhattan and are evacuating people.  NYPD Confirms this was a Terrorist attack by an ISIS-inspired individual.  Manhattan is now in total "gridlock" as police have closed 8th Avenue, also the east-west cross streets of 42nd St, 34th St., 23rd st. and 14th street to facilitate emergency vehicle responses.  The city is now in a traffic nightmare, orders of magnitude over the typical nightmare.
