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

Original title: Gas explosion kills 1, injures 5 in Philadelphia




  • The explosion occurred in Philadelphia's Tacony neighborhood
  • The blast killed one utilities worker and injured five other people
  • Some of the injuries are serious

(CNN) -- A gas main explosion in Philadelphia Tuesday evening killed one utilities worker and injured five other people, a fire department official said.

Philadelphia Gas Works employees were responding to a gas main break in the city's Tacony neighborhood when the explosion occurred, fire department spokesman Jim Smith said.

"They were trying to control it and found a source of ignition," according to Smith, who said four PGW employees and a firefighter were among the injured. He said some of the gas workers' injuries were serious.

Gas line eruption causes explosion and fire near Edmonton

A gas line eruption is believed to have caused an explosion west of Edmonton Thursday morning.

Emergency crews were called to the fire at Range Road 275 near 44 Avenue in Stony Plain.

“Call came into us at about 8:15 a.m. for an explosion. While en route, our dispatch advised us that is was a gas line that was hit,” explained Deputy Chief Bert Lubbers with the Stony Plain Fire Department.

“We pulled on scene (and) there was a large fireball behind some houses. We pulled some line to try and protect the exposures and waited for ATCO gas to secure the line.”

One of those houses belongs to Sandy and Rhiney Getzinger. They were out taking their grandson to school when a piece of construction equipment ruptured a natural gas line.

“The neighbor said there was a big explosion while she was having coffee,” Sandy said.

“All of a sudden, she heard the swoosh and looked out and saw a big ball of flame.”

“It’s pretty scary when you see all the fire trucks and everything in the driveway and the hoses behind your house – we didn’t know if it was our house or what was going on.”

Lubbers said the heat from the engine likely sparked the fireball.

There were some tense moments west of Edmonton Thursday morning when a construction ruptured a gas line, sending a fireball into the air. Fletcher Kent has more.

2 killed, 4 taken to hospital after industrial accident at TECO plant

Last Updated: Thursday, June 29, 2017, 6:56 PM EDT

Two people have died and four others hospitalized after an industrial accident Thursday afternoon at the TECO plant in Apollo Beach.

  • Accident occurred in slag tank at Big Bend

Corey Dierdorff, the public information officer for Hillsborough County Fire Rescue, said a 911 call was made at about 4:20 p.m. about a "possible explosion."

Two people were dead at the scene, he said. Two were airlifted to Tampa General Hospital, and two others were taken by ground to Tampa General. They suffered severe burn injuries.

At a 6:30 p.m. news conference, Dierdorff said the situation was under control, and there was no threat to the community. TECO said it's working with the families of those affected.

The incident occurred at the Big Bend Station, one of three TECO power plants and the largest. It runs on coal.

Routine manteinance was being done on a "slag tank" when the accident occurred, a TECO spokeswoman said. A slag tank houses burned bits of coal and water. That product is used in sandblasting and roofing industries.

Thursday's incident comes almost two decades after a deadly explosion at TECO's Gannon power plant. That happened on April 8, 1999, with three people killed and 50 more injured.

Hydrogen contained inside the 375-megawatt generator exploded when the access cover was prematurely opened during a maintenance outage, Tampa Electric said the next day.

Gas Explosion Guts a Kentucky University Dorm Building

Jun 28 2017, 8:37 pm ET

A gas leak at a Kentucky university dormitory caused a massive explosion Wednesday afternoon that gutted the building and injured at least one person.

Murray State University’s new Richmond Residential College, which opened in 2009, had the natural gas leak before 5 p.m. local time (6 p.m. ET), according to Calloway County Emergency Management Director William Call.

One Murray State employee who was in the building at the time was injured, and a large portion of the building was destroyed, Call said. The building was not full of students because of the summer break. The extent of the victim's injuries was not immediately known.

“They were injured and taken to hospital for treatment," said Call."One other person had a minor injury and was treated on the scene.”

Kentucky State Police and other local emergency agencies responded to the call.

Some workers had been in the residential college earlier in the day to paint the walls and do some other maintenance work. They had left for the day when the explosion occurred, Call told NBC News.

The explosion was so powerful that it did some damage to surrounding buildings and shattered some of their windows, officials said. Western Kentucky NBC affiliate WPSD reported that vibrations from the explosion could be felt off campus

5 injured in steam pipe explosion on Eutaw Street in Baltimore

A steam pipe exploded on Eutaw Street between West Lombard and Pratt Streets Tuesday evening during rush hour and just before the Orioles game, a Baltimore Fire Department spokeswoman said.

Five people were injured in the explosion, which took place outside of the Holiday Inn, the fire department tweeted.

"The ground just blew up," said 47-year-old Kevin King, who was standing across the street. "Rocks just went all the way around, debris just went everywhere. ... It sounded like a bomb — boom."

Nearby cars were covered in debris and some had broken windows. The ground near the explosion site remains hot.

"Our first priority is making sure the two people who came in contact with the steam pipe explosion are treated, whether it's on scene or they're transported," fire department spokeswoman Blair Adams said.

Steam pipe explosion in downtown Baltimore

Baltimore City Police are blocking off streets. Motorists are urged to avoid the area. Orioles fans were urged to enter on the south side and the game will start on time, according to tweets from the Mayor's Office of Emergency Management. HazMat is monitoring the air, the office said.

2 dead, 1 missing after Columbia County explosion

'It's a large three or four story building that doesn't exist anymore,' Cambria Village President Glen Williams says

Updated: 12:25 PM CDT Jun 1, 2017
Two people were killed and several others injured in a late Wednesday explosion and fire at a corn milling plant in Columbia County. One of two employees who had been missing was found dead about 5:50 p.m. Thursday.

A search and rescue mission continued Thursday night for the other employee who had been on shift at the Didion Milling plant on Highway 146 in Cambria who was still missing as of 7:45 p.m. Thursday, Sheriff Dennis Richards said during a news conference.

Richards said crews would be working throughout the night, but the structure of the building was dangerous.

More than 35 police, fire and medical service agencies responded to the explosion and subsequent fire that caused a portion of the building to collapse. Two med flight and two Flight for Life helicopters were called.

"It's a large three or four story building that doesn't exist anymore," Cambria Village President Glen Williams said about the rubble.

The cause of the explosion was unknown as of Thursday night.

Divine Savior Hospital spokeswoman Haley Gilman said the hospital in nearby Portage received six people injured in the explosion. She said one was transferred to the burn unit at the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison, one was admitted to the intensive care unit and four were treated and released.

University of Wisconsin Hospital spokeswoman Emily Kumlien said five people were air-lifted to her facility. She said four were in the hospital's burn center, while the fifth was in the hospital's trauma and life support center. She declined to release further details.

The company, which produces corn and ethanol products, began in 1972 and now has about 175 employees that work around the clock.

"This is a pretty close community. Several of our team members are involved in this community," said the company's president, Riley Didion. "On behalf of the company and behalf of all of our team that’s going through this, (we ask) for your prayers, for your support, for your respect for the families that are going through some tough and challenging times right now."
