Con Edison has made compensation payments to nearly 90 survivors and residents of the fatal blast in Harlem.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the payments came a day after federal investigators found a leak in the gas main near one of the leveled buildings.

Eight people were killed and over 60 people were injured. The cause of the blast has not been determined.

Con Ed spokesman Robert McGree says the company has made 87 payments to victims who were injured or lost their homes.

He declined to provide the average amount paid for each victim.

He says the payments were made after "one-on-one" meetings with the victims.
