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

No injuries following Carmichaels gas well explosion

  • Dec 20, 2019

No one was injured when a gas well exploded in Carmichaels Township Thursday night.

According to Greene County Emergency Management Director Greg Leathers, there was a failure in the valve of a pipeline owned by Diversified Gas & Oil.

The explosion occurred at around 10:30 p.m. Thursday, in the 900 block of Ceylon Road.

“(Diversified) were on the scene very quickly, and turned off the valve,” Leathers said.

Though the explosion was loud, Leathers said it did not cause a fire, and it did it did not last long.

“People felt it,” Leathers said. “There was a crew in Fayette County looking on their side of the river.”

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.

Apparent natural gas explosion destroys Mt. Vernon home, closes nearby high school

MOUNT VERNON, Wash. -- An apparent natural gas leak caused a large explosion that shook a Mount Vernon neighborhood and left a home fully engulfed in flames.

The explosion was reported in the 900 block of East Fulton Street just after 6 a.m., according to Peter Donovan with the city of Mount Vernon. Firefighters arrived to find a "raging fire" in a home, reportedly fueled by a leaking natural gas line.

Two people were inside the home at the time of the explosion and managed to escape before flames took over the entire structure, Donovan said. One of the residents was injured and was taken to a local hospital, but the extent of their injuries was not given. The other resident was not hurt.

Daniel Darsch, who lives next door, immediately woke up when the explosion happened.

“I was sound asleep, I heard a big boom and I was trying to figure out what the heck it was, like a storm or something,” Darsch said. “I noticed in the curtains of my window in my bedroom, that there was some glowing, I looked and a big stinkin’ fire right over there.”

Firefighters were able to save two nearby homes from damage. Officials from Cascade Natural Gas responded to the scene to shut off the gas line. According to Mount Vernon’s assistant fire chief Bryan Harris, the gas line was shut off at around 10:15 a.m.

“I don’t necessarily know if there was a natural gas leak,” Harris said, “I don’t even know if that was the cause at this point.”

According to Harris, it will take some time before investigators will be able to determine a cause.

“We just want to get in there, get room for the investigators to try to make a cause determination,” he said.

The explosion was so powerful, it knocked items off of shelves in nearby homes.

“All of the stuff in our house, most of the stuff on the shelves and stuff, they were just falling off,” Darsch said.

Mount Vernon High School, which is across the street from the burning home, was closed for the day due to the fire response.

4 injured in Dippin' Dots factory explosion

'We are praying for their recovery'

An explosion at a Dippin' Dots ice cream fatory in Ketucky injured four people Friday night, authorities said.

Dippin' Dots CEO Scott Fischer said the four who were injured have been hospitalized. One person was discharged and another is set to be discharged soon.

"We have contacted the proper local, state and federal officials and will be working side-by-side with them to conduct a thorough investigation. It is premature for us to comment at this time without the benefit of facts from a comprehensive investigation," Fischer said in a statement to FOX Business.

"At this moment what is most important to us is our employees, especially our four team members who were injured last night. We are a close-knit company and we are praying for their recovery, and grateful there were no fatalities. Additionally, we want to thank our local first responders for their quick and capable assistance last night. We appreciate what they did to help us," Fischer added.

Paducah city spokeswoman Pam Spencer said the plant, where Dippin' Dots is headquartered, had a nitrogen leak, but it was unclear whether that leak caused the explosion or happened afterward. Nitrogen is used to flash-freeze Dippin’ Dots novelty ice cream.

The extent of the explosion victims' injuries and damage to the factory remains unknown, Hesiner told reporters, adding that he wants to "ensure that they're safe" and would bring a structural engineer to the facility to assess the damage so cleanup can begin.
