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

Explosions spark huge fire in Italian port, no casualties

Europe | 2020-09-16 14:39:18
Explosions and a huge fire ripped through the port area of the Italian city of Ancona early Wednesday, destroying warehouses and lorries, but there were no casualties, firefighters said.
The flames created vast mushroom clouds of smoke in the city on Italy's Adriatic coast.
The explosions sparked the fire shortly after midnight. The blaze was under control Wednesday morning after the intervention of 16 firefighting teams, the fire service said on Twitter.
It was not yet clear what caused the explosions.
Warehouses in the area were likely to have stored flammable liquid, according to Rai news, which said there was a company nearby that produced liquid nitrogen, as well as a power station and methane plant.
As the smell of burning filled Ancona, the capital of the Marche region, the council said it had "temporarily ordered closed all schools, the university, the parks, open-air sports facilities".

Massive gas main fire investigation underway in Fort Smith

Fort Smith Fire Department arrived on the scene Wednesday night and found a 10-inch, high-pressure natural gas transmission on fire.

FORT SMITH, Ark — Emergency crews arrived at the corner of Zero Street and Massard Road in Fort Smith after a fire broke out in the area Wednesday (Sept. 16) night.

Fort Smith Fire Department (FSFD), Barling Fire Department (BFD) and AOG were on the scene and found a 10-inch, high-pressure natural gas transmission on fire, according to Chief Fuller with FSFD.

Fuller says FSPD secured water supplies and immediately started trying to protect and cool the other transmission lines on-site and protect the structures in the area.

This was a high-pressure transmission line, so there were no worries of an explosion.

AOG was able to get the gas shut off.

There are no injuries to report and no other buildings were damaged.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. AOG was on-scene beginning an investigation when FSPD left the scene at around 1:30 a.m.

According to a Barling firefighter, it was a gas main that was on fire.

No other details have been released at this time.

Just over 200 miles west another gas line explosion rocked the city of Piedmont, Oklahoma. Our CBS affiliate News 9 reports that fireballs from the explosion could be seen rising more than 150 feet the air.

Oklahoma explosion: Huge blast and 'massive flames' spotted in US - 'Sky glowed orange'

OKLAHOMA residents have reported an explosion, followed by a huge fire, on social media.

PUBLISHED: 03:09, Thu, Sep 17, 2020 | UPDATED: 04:39, Thu, Sep 17, 2020

The fire was reported near Piedmont Road and Waterloo Road in Edmond, Oklahoma. Social media footage shows a huge ball of flame on the horizon from residents. Multiple firefighters have responded to the call and are on the site tackling the blaze, which has knocked out power lines. Some users noted the fireball took place in a “huge gas pipeline area”.

Officials said a 12 inch gas pipeline running underneath Piedmont and Waterloo roads exploded.

A huge section of the junction has been obliterated by the blast, leaving a huge crater.

Media outlets and onlookers said debris was flung across the road, and the force of the blast flattened power lines.

After the blast, the gas line caught fire, with the blaze being visible for miles and reaching between 50 to 100 feet high.

It is unknown what caused the initial explosion.

Logan County, Canadian County, and Kingfisher County Sheriff’s Offices all responded with Piedmont Fire, Cashion Fire, and Oakcliff Fire to tackle the blaze.

The Kingfisher County sheriff told US media group News 9 a high pressure gas line was possibly hit, causing the explosion, but this is yet to be confirmed.

Piedmont police told local news outlet KOCO 5 the explosion took place in a rural area with few residents.

The police chief said no injuries were reported, and no evacuations took place as of 9:27PM CDT (3:27AM GMT).

Traffic on Piedmont and Waterloo road is being diverted by the officers.

Some Twitter users claimed mass evacuations were taking place due to the blaze, contradicting the police chief.

Others sent their best wishes to the first responders.

Explosion and fire rips through Italian port of Ancona overnight

6 September 2020

Thick black smoke over the port of Ancona on Wednesday morning.

Schools and parks have been closed in Ancona after an explosion and large fire in the port early on Wednesday morning.

Plumes of thick smoke billowed eastwards over the Italian port city of Ancona on Wednesday after fires broke out among a cluster of warehouses the previous night.

Explosions sparked the fire shortly after midnight, though is is not yet clear what caused the blast.

Firefighters from Ancona and several neighbouring towns in the region of Le Marche, on the Adriatic coast, promptly rushed in to put out the fires as they blazed well into the morning.

“First was a powerful blast at 1:30pm last night, then three or four explosions, then fire,” recalled a French holidaymaker, who asked not to be named and spent the night in a caravan one hundred metres from the outbreak.

“We were asleep and there was a roar,” said resident Lara Pulizie, who lives in a flat next to the site of the explosion and has since closed the windows to keep the fumes out. “People in the street were screaming, because it seemed as though the whole complex could burst.”

“Then everybody was at their windows trying to see what was happening, because the flames were so tall,” she added. “We were ready to take our kids and run.” CONTINUE...

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."

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.
