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 3 dead, 50 wounded in Chilean hospital explosion

Source: Xinhua| 2018-04-22 05:20:12

SANTIAGO, April 21 (Xinhua) -- An explosion on Saturday at a medical center in Concepcion, south of capital Santiago, killed at least three people and left around 50 wounded.

The local mayor, Alvaro Ortiz, told the press that the explosion was caused by a gas leak inside the hospital.

Ortiz said that repair work was going on in tower A of the Aleman de Concepcion sanatorium. While the Gas Sur company had evacuated the medical center to ensure everything was under control, people returned inside when the blast took place.

Ortiz said that "it is a highly dramatic situation" and that "a number of the injured are in critical condition."

The governor of the region of Biobio, Jorge Ulloa, also said that the injured had been taken to hospitals, adding that the medical center had been evacuated and "part of the structure had collapsed."

The conflagration from the blast spread over three square blocks and preliminary reports said some neighboring buildings had also suffered structural damage.

Chile's President Sebastian Pinera, in a Twitter post, expressed his "sincere condolences to the victims and their relatives ... my thoughts and prayers are with you."

He added that Health Minister Emilio Santelices and his undersecretary, Paula Daza, would visit the area.

Interior Minister Andres Chadwick also said that he had summoned the Emergency Operations Center to act in collaboration with Biobio authorities.

50 partially back open in Stateline after underground explosions

STATELINE, Nev. (KOLO)-- One lane of Highway 50 in each direction is open at Stateline after Sunday's underground explosions.

The Nevada Highway Patrol tweeted this photograph of an explosion aftermath on U.S. 50 in front of the Hard Rock Casino.

Sunday, NV Energy turned off electricity to get to electrical equipment that caused the explosions. That's because according to Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Joe Duffy, the potential remained for another explosion until the switch was de-energized. That allowed NV Energy to determine what damage was done.

The explosions knocked out power to 404 NV Energy customers Sunday morning, but by mid-Sunday afternoon, only five were still without power.

The 5:07 a.m. and 5:14 a.m. explosions April 1, 2018 were due to a bad power switch in the ground, Duffy said. There was also a natural gas leak in the area; Southwest Gas repaired that. Duffy said it wasn't clear if that gas leak was related to the explosion.

The explosions took place underground on U.S. 50 in front of the Hard Rock Casino. No injuries were reported

Six dead after storage tank explodes at Unipetrol site near Prague

Six dead after storage tank explodes at Unipetrol site near Prague

March 22, 2018

Six people were killed by an explosion that ripped through a storage tank at a production site of sole Czech refiner and petrochemical producer Unipetrol on the morning of March 22.

The deaths—confirmed by rescue officials—occurred during the cleaning of the tank by new contractors when an electrical short circuit ignited gas, according to local government officials who spoke to Czech media outlets including news server idnes.cz.

The tragedy at Unipetrol’s production complex in Kralupy nad Vltavou north of Prague is another blow to the company which has been steadily recovering healthy petrochemical sales since it reconstructed its ethylene steam cracker, destroyed by an August 2015 explosion at Unipetrol’s main production site in

Litvinov in North Bohemia near the German border. The plastics producer was also in May 2016 knocked out of its stride by a blast at the Kralupy site which wrecked facilities including petroleum conversion technology.

Three people lost their lives and another two were injured in an explosion in Catania on Tuesday.

Italian media reported that two of those who died were firemen.

The explosion is believed to have started from a gas leak in a bike repair shop in Via Garibaldi.

When neighbours noticed a strong smell of gas coming out of the shop, they called the fire brigade. But as soon as the firefighters attempted to cut the chain to enter the shop, a spark was released and the entire building went up in flames.

Five firefighters had to be taken to hospital but two died shortly after arriving at Vittorio Emanuele Hospital. Another two suffered extensive burns and were admitted to Garibaldi Hospital. One of them also suffered a head injury, while the other has been diagnosed with a pulmonary trauma, Italian media reported.

The fifth firefighter suffered shock.

The charred body of another victim, a man over 80 who lived in the building, was found in the rubble.

An inquiry is being held.

Terrifying explosion rips through chemical plant as witnesses hear 'big kaboom'

Published 15th March 2018

A HUGE explosion has rocked a chemical plant in Texas, leaving two people injured and another missing.

Dozens of fire fighters have scrambled to battle a large blaze that broke out at a chemical plant in North Texas, US, on Thursday morning (local time). 

The raging inferno was triggered by a huge explosion at the Tri-Chem Industries Plant in the town of Cresson, about 20 miles southwest of Fort Worth. 

A "big kaboom" and multiple explosions were heard at around 9.45am local time (2.45pm UK time), according to eyewitnesses. 

Further explosion were heard at around 11.15am local time, speading the flames to other sections of the building, located beside a major highway. 

Seven fire departments have deployed crew, many of whom are volunteers, to help quash the flames.

The cause of the explosion is not yet clear.

Two people, one with serious burns and another with minor injuries, have been rushed to hospital for treatment while a third person is still missing. 

One concerned bystander described how bits of flaming debris such as "metal lids on buckets" were "blowing out of the roof". 

Jesse Bailey, who works next door, said the smoke billowing from the plant "smells like sulfur".

errifying eyewitness video and photos show a column of flames bursting into the air, leaving thick black smoke billowing in its wake. 

The State Fire Marshal's Office is probing the cause of the fire, NBC DFW reported. 

The chemical plant and a nearby lumber yard have been evacuated.

Tri-Chem Industries provides "specialty chemical and blending" services to customers in Texas and the Gulf Coast region, according to its website.
