We'll be seeing an uptick in unusual home and business gas explosions and I'm trying to locate specific ZT on the matter.  Below is a refresher for the many gas related news articles.



Fault lines, when adjusting, do not just rip apart one day during a dramatic earthquake. They most often creep. Laying gas lines along or across a fault line is asking for an accident of this sort. Fault lines are also seldom so clearly delineated that one can go a mile in this or that direction and avoid their action. Where a slip-slide fault such as the San Andreas will often leave a clear line on the surface, this is only the surface action, not what occurs in the rock layers on either side which can fracture for a long way to either side during any movement. The gas company, or the age of the pipes, will be faulted but in truth the finger should be pointed in many directions. The public, who insist on living at such a scenic spot, is to blame. Officials, who zoned for housing are to blame. The public utility company, for allowing gas lines in the area, is to blame. But this will change nothing, while man continues to live on the San Andreas, even as it awakens. EOZT



The danger from radon gas will not be increased as a result of the pole shift. Radon gas is emitted by rock containing uranium, which is degrading. In normal circumstances, where air can circulate, it is disbursed rapidly as is any methane created by decay of organic material. The danger from these gasses comes from confinement - being trapped in a mine, a basement, or beneath the permafrost. The dangers are well known. For methane, it is explosions. An accumulation of methane gas can be identified by the smell of rotten eggs, or as some have described it, dirty socks or cabbage soup. For radon gas the danger is lung cancer, from the continual exposure to the radioactive air. Radon gas is odorless, and cannot be detected except by specialized equipment not in the hands of the average person.

In that the pole shift, or the Earth changes preceding the pole shift, can fracture rock and release pockets of either gas, survivors should be cautious about huddling in bunkers. You are safer out in the open air, or in a trench you have dug that will allow the pole shift winds to pass over you, but nothing to fall on and crush you. The fact that both methane gas and radon gas can accumulate in the bunkers of the elite is one of the reasons we have stated that they have dug their own graves. EOZT

Anyone watching the news, for instance the news on the San Bruno explosion in a distribution line close to the San Andreas Fault line, knows that gas in any form is a danger. Oil and gas refineries explode when rigid piping cracks. Oil or gas wells explode when the ground around them moves. And the gas distribution lines running under cities are no exception. They likewise will explode. Gas lines, whether along the street or within a home, are rigid. In some cases automatic shutoff valves can limit the amount of gas available for an explosion by sensing a drop in pressure, but this is always after the fact. The explosion has already occurred. Utilizing gas on a planet prone to earthquakes was a mistake to begin with, but man never thinks of the consequences when striving for modern conveniences. We have advised turning off the gas at the street, though when the street explodes and your neighbor's homes are on fire you are not likely to escape the holocaust. A better alternative is to live in an area where gas is not available, as in your rural safe location where you will be doing a form of camping while gardening. A campfire at night, for cooking and washing and a bit of friendly light before bed. Nothing explosive. EOZT

SOZT Answer: It is no accident that the New Madrid fault lies under the Mississippi River near Memphis, as rivers form in lowlands created when land pulls apart, separating the rock fingers and weakening support for the land. Thus, the Ohio River bed also is an indication of where rock fingers will pull apart. Two adjustments in Kentucky, a day apart, are not an accident, but an indication of the speed at which the stretch zone is starting to adjust. Rail lines are frequently an early harbinger of such adjustments, as they run long distances, whereas structures within cities, such as tall buildings, take up relatively little space and have a small footprint. Our warning that imploding cities will be experienced, before the hour of the shift, are in this regard. Be warmed, it will not just be your rail lines and gas and water mains that will shatter and be pulled apart during the stretch. The foundations of your tall buildings will likewise be vulnerable.EOZT

Pipeline explosion on the East Rand sees homes evacuated

31 December 2019 - 09:01

Reports of a pipeline explosion in Alberton, Ekurhuleni, early on Tuesday saw some residents being evacuated for safety reasons.

Eric Maloka, acting disaster and emergency management services spokesperson, said the blaze was brought under control before 11am. Authorities will remain on scene to monitor the situation.

Initially believed to be a gas pipeline, Maloka confirmed that it contained jet fuel and passed Verwoerd Park to a depot in the area.

“The residents are out of danger as the situation is under control. No one was injured and about 40 houses were evacuated, some of which were not in immediate danger, but it was done as a precaution.

“At the moment we are dealing with the secondary flames, but it’s contained,” said Maloka.

“Electrical lines and other easily triggered services are also being monitored. The local policing forum is on the ground to ensure the safety of goods belonging to residents who were evacuated,” said Maloka.

More than a dozen people hurt in explosion at Beechcraft plant in Wichita

Posted: Dec 27, 2019 7:20 AM MSTUpdated: Dec 27, 2019 5:09 PM MST


UPDATE: Plant three will remain closed until further notice. Operations at the remaining facilities on the East campus will resume on December 28th.

Authorities say more than a dozen people were hurt when a nitrogen line ruptured at the Beechcraft aircraft manufacturing facility in east Wichita.

The explosion happened around 8 a.m. Friday when a 3-inch nitrogen gas line ruptured at the facility located in the 300 block of North Webb Road. Part of Plant 3 collapsed.

Sedgwick County EMS Director John Gallagher initially said 11 people were taken to hospitals and four were treated at the scene. 

A spokesperson for Ascension Via Christi says St. Francis received nine patients. By late Friday afternoon, four had been treated and released and a fifth was expected to be released. Two people admitted in serious condition were listed in fair condition and a third listed as serious was been upgraded to good. The person who suffered critical injuries has been upgraded to serious condition.

Wesley Medical Center had three patients in stable condition and two others who were treated and released, according to a hospital spokesperson.

The rupture was contained, but gas continued to vent, although it posed no risk to nearby residents, officials said.

“The plant closed or shut down for the holiday season so the numbers that would have been here, were not, so it was a skeleton crew,” Deputy Fire Chief Daniel Wegner said.

The cause of the blast is under investigation.

James Fromme, a chief for the Wichita Fire Department, said there were no reports that anyone was still trapped in the building.

Stephanie Harder, a spokeswoman for Beechcraft’s parent company, Textron Aviation, said the structure where the explosion happened is part of a complex of buildings and houses the business’ composite manufacturing and experimental aircraft.

“Difficult day. Difficult news,” she said.

The state Fire Marshal’s Office, OSHA and the local lodge of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers didn’t immediately respond to phone messages.

The explosion comes at a difficult time for the aircraft industry in Wichita, which is a major sector of the Kansas economy.

Boeing announced that it would suspend production of its troubled 737 Max jetliner in January, forcing the state to consider helping to pay workers at Spirit AeroSystems, which produces the jet’s fuselages. And earlier this month, Textron Aviation announced that it would lay off an unspecified number of workers, most of them in Wichita.

The plant is in the legislative district of Kansas Senate President Susan Wagle, a Wichita Republican.

“I am praying for those who are injured and my staff and I will be in close contact with community and state leaders as investigators work to learn more,” Wagle said in an emailed statement.

An emergency help line has been established for employees impacted by the explosion. Those who need assistance can call (316) 517-5252.

Buses Go up in Flames at LAX-It Lot; No Injuries Reported  December 21, 2019


Two unoccupied passenger buses erupted with flames, and a third was damaged, in the LAX-it lot at Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday night, officials said.

The fire was first reported just before 9 p.m. at the lot, 9610 S. Sky Way, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey.

Two liquid propane-powered buses were "fully involved" with fire, Humphrey said, but there were no initial reports of any injuries, nor anyone on board the buses. Fire officials initially reported three buses were in flames.

About 25 firefighters extinguished the flames in about 20 minutes minutes, Humphrey said.

"Though the fire's cause remains under investigation, there is no reason to consider it suspicious at this time," he said.

The fire broke out amid a holiday weekend expected to see nearly 6 million travelers.

Service at the LAX-it lot was briefly shut down as a result of the fire, officials said.

Thousands 'left without gas for days' in freezing conditions 

A mains failure means thousands of people could be without gas for days.

Gas: Thousands left without.
Gas: Thousands left without.

Schools could be closed and thousands of people left without gas for days in central Scotland due to a mains failure.

Eight thousand properties are affected, with Gas infrastructure company SGN saying it will have to go door-to-door to turn off supplies in affected properties for safety reasons.

Temperatures in the area are below zero and are expected to remain low over the coming days. Falkirk Council said schools may have to close tomorrow and it would be working with SGN to care for vulnerable people affected.

SGN said it would provide electric heaters and cookers for the elderly, disabled, chronically sick and those with young children - and would be available from Camelon Community Centre.

In a statement, the company said a fault in a piece of equipment that regulates pressure in the gas network was to blame.

"While we repair the gas governor, we need to visit all affected properties to turn off your gas supply at the meter and we'll need access to your home to turn off your gas supply," SGN said.

"It will take us some days to reach everyone so if you do need to pop out or go to work, it would be helpful for us if you're able to leave a key with a neighbour.

"With so many homes affected, it's likely you could be without your gas supply for several days. We're sorry for the inconvenience this will cause. We're doing all we can to restore gas supplies to the area as soon as possible."

Falkirk Council said i had alerted housing and social work services to be on stand by to support SGN and was contacting head teachers to let parents know this evening about what schools may be affected.

"We have a list of vulnerable people in the area so we know were people who may have the most difficulty are," a spokesman said.

He said schools could potentially close if the buildings are very cold, though all care homes in affected areas are currently fine.

"We are ready to support SGN in any way we can," he said.

Explosion at Princeton reclamation plant

Nov. 28, 2019 4:00 p.m.

Envirogreen soil processing plant rocked by blast

The cause of an explosion at a soil reclamation operation near Princeton may not be known for a while.

Vijay Lanji, president of Envirogreen Technologies, said the company is in the process of investigating the explosion that occurred at their Similkameen operation on Nov. 28.

“There were no injuries. And that’s the most important thing,” said Lanji.

“Now we’re just trying to figure out what happened, whether it was a control issue or what. We’ve just had WorkSafe take a look at the site, release it back to us so we can start our investigation.”

The Envirogreen plant, located about 18 kilometres south of Princeton, on Highway 3, uses a thermal desorption process to purify hydrocarbon-contaminated soil.

Lanji said the soil it processes comes from many sites, such as old gas station brown sites and old mine sites such as the one his plant is located in.

Unlike incineration, which produces ash, the desorption process heats waste at a lower temperature, causing the hydrocarbon contaminants to off-gas. That gas is captured and used as fuel for the plant.

The resulting soil is sterilized and used for mine reclamation, according to Lanji.

Investigators are looking into where the explosion began.

“We’re trying to determine that, whether it was in some ductwork or a burner. It hasn’t been established yet,” said Lanji. “We were just on the phone with our supplier to see what might have failed.”

The plant employs about 30 people and Lanji said the company wants to make sure everything is sound before it returns to full operation.

“We want our supplier to be involved in the investigation to make sure all of our safety mechanisms etc are working before we start putting our plan together for starting up operation.”

Envirogreen has operated in the Princeton location since 1995. According to the company’s website, it operates with permits granted by the British Columbia Ministry of Environment and the facility has been audited by prominent regulatory agencies.
