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

At least 9 injured in gas explosion near Rome

ROME - A gas explosion at a building housing the town hall of Rocca di Papa, 25 kilometres southeast of Rome, left at least nine people injured, including mayor Emanuele Crestini, who has extensive burns to the face and arms, ANSA reported Monday.

The explosion also affected nearby nursery school Leonida Montanari, leaving three children injured. One of them was taken to a hospital with severe injuries, but his life is not in danger, health commissioner Alessio D'Amato said in a statement.

Initial information from the fire brigade suggested that the explosion occurred due to a gas leaking caused by workers who chopped through a gas main in the street. The explosion destroyed the facade of the municipality building and threw glass and masonry toward the nursery school, which injured the children.

After the incident, residents were evacuated and the area was sealed off, sources told the Italian news agency.

Still according to ANSA, prosecutors have opened a probe into ‘culpable disaster’ and culpable grievous bodily harm (GBH) against person or persons unknown.

Natural gas distributer Italgas issued a statement blaming a third party for the explosion, The Australian reported. The distributer has not revealed which company would have been responsible for the incident.

2 missing, 20 + injured as massive blasts hit TNT plant in Russia’s Dzerzhinsk city Published 1 Jun, 2019

Two people are missing and at least 20 were injured when three large blasts rocked a TNT plant in Dzerzhinsk in Central Russia. The shockwave damaged several buildings, and a huge plume of smoke is hovering over the city.

The blasts were so powerful that people even heard them in Bogorodsk, another city, some 15 km away. Meanwhile, residents in Dzershinsk saw large plumes of grey smoke rising above the city streets. Witnesses said that the shockwave from the explosions shattered windows in nearby buildings.

This is not the first time explosions had happened at the same TNT-maker. On April 4, a blast brought down one of its one-story structures. It took an hour to put down the fire, and, luckily, no one got hurt that day. A much deadlier explosion occurred in the plant in August, when five of its workers were killed.

Lidgate gas explosion: Two dead in Suffolk bungalow blast

  • 7 May 2019

Two people have died in a suspected gas explosion which destroyed a bungalow.

The rear of the home was blown out by a series of explosions at the property in The Street in Lidgate, near Newmarket in Suffolk.

Crews began tackling the blaze at about midday and specialist dogs were later brought in after two people were "unaccounted for".

The cause of the explosion is unknown and a joint fire and police investigation is taking place.

Officers said the fire was believed to have been caused by a gas explosion.

One neighbour said it rattled the windows of homes further along the road, and described it as a "huge explosion".

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said it had sent four crews to deal with the blaze.

Fire officers had spent the afternoon trying to establish the whereabouts of the two missing people.

Incident commander Darren Reeve said: "We are working extremely hard to try and identify if we have anyone in or not."

Police said the road was likely to remain closed "for quite some time".
