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

I-70 back open following gas line leak west of Salina

Posted: Thu 2:53 PM, Aug 25, 2016

LINCOLN COUNTY, Kan. (KWCH) UPDATE: Interstate 70 is back open after a gas leak shut down traffic. Troopers diverted drivers off the interstate near Glendale in Lincoln County Thursday afternoon.

Kansas Highway Patrol

The leak was initially reported as a gas line explosion a little before 1 p.m., about 20 miles west of Salina.

There were no reports of injuries in the explosion. Officials with Northern Natural Gas say there was no danger to the public, but they decided to shut down the interstate as a precaution.

There were some reports of a loud noise with the leak and dirt flying in the air. We're told that can happen when there's a leak in a pressurized zone.

A portion of I-70 is closed in Lincoln County due to a gas line explosion.

Trooper Ben Gardner tweeted out that the explosion is located about 20 miles west of Salina.

Dispatchers say dirt went flying into the air when the explosion occurred.

Both directions of I-70 are closed at milepost 230.

At this time, we don't know if there are any injuries.

Eyewitness News has a crew headed to the scene.

People Mover reopens after Detroit explosions

11:49 a.m. EDT August 25, 2016

The Detroit People Mover has reopened this morning, hours after underground explosions forced evacuations in Downtown Detroit.

No injuries were reported, but people were temporarily evacuated from the area, including the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel, as a precaution. Because the explosions happened near the Detroit People Mover, the elevated rail line did not open initially. Peter Van Dyke, a spokesman working on behalf of the People Mover, confirmed after 11 a.m. that the system has now opened.

Structural engineers investigated the system for any potential structural damage and found it to be safe, according to a news release.

"The Times Square station will remain closed until further notice until clean-up is complete.  An all clear was issued by DTE Energy and engineers have determined the system is safe," the release said.

DTE Energy crews have been on the scene investigating what caused the 12:30 a.m. reports of explosions. John Austerberry, a spokesman for DTE Energy, said that area above ground -- the explosions were centered in the Times Square/Grand River area -- are considered "safe and secure."

The cause of the explosions was not known as of 11:30 a.m., and crews were preparing do an investigation of the underground electrical equipment in the area, Austerberry said, noting that before that investigation can take place, the area has to be deemed safe for crews to venture underground.

One possible explanation for the explosions could relate to cable failures.

"When underground high-voltage cables fail, they release energy into a confined space. This typically causes an explosive noise," according to a statement from DTE Energy.

(CNN) —Seven people were injured, including four critically, in an explosion at a Texas crude-oil plant, authorities said.

The fire occurred Friday night at a Sunoco Logistics terminal in Nederland -- about 90 miles east of Houston.

According to the company that owned the marine terminal, Sunoco Logistics, it appeared to involve a crude-oil pipeline connection.

Some of the victims suffered serious burns, according to Deputy Marcus McLellan with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.

"Three of the injured were transported to burn centers via helicopter, four by ambulance to area hospitals," Sunoco Logistics said in a statement.

The injured were employees of a company that contracted for Sunoco.

"Sunoco Logistics will work with the contractor, L-Con, Inc., to investigate the cause of the accident and support those injured and their families. Our prayers are with them," the company said.

The fire did not affect nearby residents, they added.

The Nederland plant is used to store crude oil and other natural gases, with a storage capacity of approximately 24 million crude oil barrels, according to Sunoco's website.
