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

  • 22 minutes ago
Fire at HooImage copyrightBEN HODGES Image captionPeople living nearby described hearing a "huge explosion" and said "the whole place shook"

A large fire has broken out in an industrial building and people have been evacuated from the nearby area.

One resident of Hoo Marina, close to the blaze on Vicarage Lane, described hearing a "huge explosion" and an eyewitness said the "place shook".

Kent Fire and Rescue Service said about 200 people had been removed from the area and advised others to keep windows and doors closed.

Five crews remain at the scene after the blaze started at about 04:40 BST.

Mark Woodward, the incident commander for the fire service, said the building was used to store animal welfare equipment and some Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders had exploded in the blaze.

Media caption Residents of Hoo reported hearing "two massive bangs"

Another eyewitness told BBC Radio Kent he heard "two massive bangs" at about 05:00.

"We thought it was a thunder bolt because the whole place shook," he said.

"All I could see in the background was a red ball of fire and we were all told to evacuate."

Mr Woodward said the blaze had been "well contained" and the fire service was "considering how best to extinguish it".

UK Power Networks confirmed it had sent engineers to the area at 10:00 after receiving reports of an interruption to power supplies to 13 properties.

The power supply to 40 customers was also cut as work continued to reconnect supplies, the company said.

A spokeswoman said the fire had damaged an overhead power cable.

Roads in the area have been closed off by Medway Council while emergency teams deal with the blaze.

House explosion leaves 7 severely injured, hospitalized

By WMCActionNews5.com Staff | September 4, 2020 at 4:52 AM CDT - Updated September 4 at 5:41 AM

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - An explosion at a home late Thursday night sent a family of seven to the hospital with severe injuries.

In North Memphis just off Britton Street and Stovall Avenue, just before 10:30 p.m., there was a house explosion.

Fire crews have blocked off the house because of major damage and unstable walls.

When firefighters arrived they notice severe damage to the house. Thankfully everyone was out, however, all seven people, four children and three adults were transported to the hospital in critical condition.

Firefighters say they suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns to more than half of their body.

The children were transported to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, and the adults are at Regional One Medical Center.

Firefighters believe this fire was accidental, but they are still investigating the cause.

Gas buildup blamed for cause of explosion this morning

Sept 1 2020

The explosion that injured two construction workers on Tuesday morning was caused by a buildup of pressurized gas.

That determination was made by the Maricopa Fire Department, which responded to the blast about 7:30 a.m. in Province where two employees were working on a drainage system for a nearby residential lake.

“The two construction workers were treated and have been transported to local area hospitals with non life-threatening injuries,” Deputy Chief Chris Bolinger said. “No firefighters were injured and the cause of the explosion has been attributed to a pressurized gas buildup (in the drainage system).”

Crews monitored the scene to assure no continuing hazard was present before closing the incident.

Gigantic 165ft Deep Crater Forms In Russia's Arctic Tundra After Explosion

Last updated 15:00, Saturday 29 August 2020 BST

giant crater caused by a massive explosion has been discovered in the Arctic circle after a summer of unprecedented heat in the area

It is thought that the explosion that created the 165ft deep hole in the tundra was caused by a build-up of methane gas that eventually combusted.

It was discovered by a TV crew flying above the Yamal peninsula in Russia, who even spotted blocks of frozen soil and ice 'hundreds of metres' from the site of the 'colossal force', according to scientists who have examined the blast site.

Basically, the thawing permafrost - caused by a ridiculously hot summer - caused the pressure to build up, eventually giving way to a huge explosion.

This is the 17th crater of this kind to be found in the last six years, and - obviously - there are a load of bizarre theories about the origin of the hole, including Kremlin missile testing and, of course, aliens.

However, the actual truth is more unsettling, because it's probably due to climate change.

The ground has been frozen for thousands of years, but is thawing out and releasing the methane that is trapped in the soil.

After Vesti Yamal TV discovered the deep crater, scientists travelled out there to examine it. They reckon it's the biggest hole they've seen like this.

Professor Vasily Bogoyavlensky, from the Russian Oil and Gas Research Institute in Moscow, added: "This object is unique.

"It holds a lot of additional scientific information, which I am not yet ready to disclose.

"This is a subject for scientific publications."

He explained that the explosions happen when 'gas-saturated cavities are formed in the permafrost,' which means that a void is 'filled with gas with high pressure' until 'the covering layer distends, the thickness of which is five to ten metres [16-32ft] approximately'.

Got all that? Good.

Some explosions like this occur in swelling 'pingos' - or mounds - in the tundra after gas builds up under a sheet of ice.

The professor has also previously said that natural gas drilling could play a role in the eruptions. He argues that more damage and disasters could be caused if such an event were to happen near gas pipelines, residential areas or production facilities.

He said: "In a number of areas, pingos - as we see both from satellite data and with our own eyes during helicopter inspections - literally prop up gas pipes.

"In some places they jack up the gas pipes... they seem to begin to slightly bend these pipes."

However, the study of these holes and the explosions that form them is still at a very early stage.

Officials: At least 62 displaced after fire tears through several buildings in Paterson

Updated: Aug 27, 2020 2:52 PM EDT

A possible explosion and early morning 4-alarm fire rocked a Paterson neighborhood, destroying several homes and leaving at least 62 people displaced.

The blaze began around 2:20 a.m. at 77 Mill St. The remains of the 3-story wood frame structure, doubling as apartments and a salon, are clearly seen. The blaze quickly moved to six other residential buildings in the tightly packed neighborhood.

The fire department is trying to gain full control of what is left of the fire. Paterson Fire Chief Brian McDermott says a potential explosion may have sparked the fire, but it's under investigation by the Paterson Arson Unit and Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

"All of the buildings are interconnected and have common spaces for fire to travel serious," says Chief Brian McDermott. "The most serious damage is at 7779. Two large three-story buildings, with that there are 62 people that are displaced. The American Red Cross -- a great job they're doing non-congregational housing right now for the victims."

Everyone is accounted for, with no injuries and no fatalities expected.

“We have our health and human services,” says Mayor Andre Sayegh. “We are going to stay on top and monitor what happens with some of these individuals. Some of them have families that they can stay with, but some may not. So, we have to be prepared and we have to continuously coordinate with the American Red Cross to see how we can further assist these individuals have been affected by this fire."

The Red Cross is providing financial assistance for the displaced residents, such as temporary shelter, food, and clothing. City leaders are also assisting.

Police also helped rescue around 15 people, along with several civilian-led rescues.

Furnace Explosion at Steel Plant in Ghana Injures 1

An explosion Monday in an induction furnace rocked a steel factory in southern Ghana, local media report.

The only injury reported was a worker with a broken ankle.

At about 6:20 p.m., United Steel Company in Tema reported an explosion inside an induction furnace being heated as routine maintenance after being shut down by the government on August 13 for environmental reasons.

Reports of damage to neighboring property are false, a company spokesperson reports.

The furnace is heated periodically as standard procedure and was empty when the blast occurred.

No smelting is being done until work is completed on a pollution system not expected to be operational until July 2021.

Gas pipeline explosion causes ‘cascading blackout’ across Syria in suspected ‘terrorist act’

24 Aug, 2020 02:20 / Updated 11 minutes ago

A suspected terrorist attack against a major gas pipeline in Damascus countryside has led to widespread power outages all across Syria, according to the country’s electricity and energy ministries.

The blast “may have been caused by a terrorist act” and “led to power cuts in all of Syria,” SANA reported, citing the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources.

While there were no reports of injuries in the blast, several photos and videos have circulated on social media purporting to show a massive blaze that engulfed the crippled pipeline.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Firefighters are battling a major fire in Corpus Christi following a pipeline explosion along the city's refinery row.

The blast happened just after 8:05 a.m. near Lantana and I-37, possibly at EPIC Products near Lantana and Navigation.

Firefighters said the fire ignited a barge, which became fully engulfed. The fire then spread from the pipeline to the grain elevator.

KRIS reports that multiple people during the explosion ended up in the water.

CHRISTUS Spohn Shoreline representatives said they are treating four people from the explosion. The extent of their injuries is unknown at this time.

Two victims are being flown to Brooke Army Medical Center burn units in San Antonio.

Corpus Christi Mayor Joe McComb said there is a search and rescue operation for four people who are still missing.

KRIS has learned that EPIC Products had a brand new pipeline built for loading. It was reportedly going in at the facility when there was a pipeline rupture at the barge loading dock.

According to Lieutenant Marina Lyons with the US Coast Guard, a dredge struck a submerged pipeline causing a fire in the Corpus Christi ship channel.

The owner of the barge said they had multiple employees working at the site at the time of the explosion.

The Corpus Christi Police Department has closed off Lantana Street to traffic as crews work to contain the inferno.

This story was originally published by Eddie Cruz, Ryan Garza and Ana Tamez at KRIS.
