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.

Two dead in Colombia coal mine explosion: official

BOGOTA (MarketWatch) -- Two miners died, three more were wounded and several more could be trapped underground in a coal mining explosion in Colombia, the latest tragedy in a series of deadly mining accidents.

Fabian Morales, the head of rescue operations at mining regulator Ingeominas, said the accident was apparently the result of an explosion of methane gas in a coal mine located in the department of Boyaca, near Bogota.

Morales added that the rescue team had yet been unable to determine how many other miners had been trapped by the explosion. So far this year, 106 workers have died in mining accidents in Colombia.

Colombia is the world's fifth-largest coal exporter and its production destined for abroad is controlled by foreign companies including Alabama-based Drummond Co., Glencore International AG (GLDLF, GLEN.LN), BHP Billiton Ltd. (BHP, BHP.AU) and Xstrata PLC (XTA.LN), which operate in open-pit coal mines.

But most of the deadly mining accidents in Colombia occur in small, underground coal mines operated by individuals or small local companies that have few safety procedures in place. The output from most of these mines is destined for the domestic market.

 Gas pipeline ruptures

Some people thought they woke up to the sound of a plane crash.

The  Gas Pipeline ruptured in rural Clark County late Tuesday, waking up people counties away.

It was centered in Trapp, east of Winchester in Clark County.

Firefighters went out, looking for what could have possibly been an explosion and finally determined the gas line ruptured off Highway 89.

After about an hour, they turned off the pipeline.

No one was injured, and there is no damage.

There were no evacuations ordered.

However, we have heard from some people, who live nearby and decided to leave their homes.

Gas explosion: city building evacuated

Raw footage: Inside a gas explosion

A building in the Perth CBD has been evacuated after a suspected gas explosion shook the high-rise tower this afternoon.

0:00 / 0:28



A BUILDING in the Perth CBD has been evacuated after a suspected gas explosion shook the high-rise tower this afternoon.

Workers inside the building, at 172 St Georges Terrace,  were lucky to escape injury when a gas hot water boiler exploded at about 3.45pm, blowing office equipment and furniture across the room.

FESA Perth District Manager John Truswell said workers in State One House at the corner of King Street  reported a strong smell of gas in the building about 2pm.

Thirty firefighters from four stations were called when the combined hot water boiler/cooler malfunctioned and exploded in the Level 2 kitchen almost two hours later.

``There were people working around it, but they were lucky there were no injuries at all just a lot of furniture blown around the room,'' Mr Truswell said.

``It's blown the cupboard to pieces and bl

Clark Co. Gas Line Rupture Heard Several Counties Away

 Gas Line Ruptures In Clark County


People across several counties heard the rumbling sound early Wednesday morning. It shook the ground and rattled windows.

A gas line ruptured just after midnight in Clark County, near the Powell County line. People as far away as Lee County heard the noise, and the LEX 18 newsroom was flooded with calls.

Herman Cole lives nearby.

"All I heard was a big pop sound and a big roar sound. I thought it was a motorcycle outside my door. So it was pretty loud," he said. "It was really roaring and it got louder and louder. No major explosion or anything," he said.

The rupture occurred in a commercial transmission line near Irvine Road. It took crews several hours to find the break and shut off the flow of gas. But officials say there was never an actual explosion. There were no injuries or evacuations, and since the line does not serve the public, there was no interruption of service.

Crews from the Tennessee Gas Company continue working to inspect and repair the line. Officials with the company have not given a timetable for repairs.

Fire officials say this wasn't the first incident involving these particular gas lines. There was a rupture four years ago and a deadly incident 50 years back.

Gasoline explosion leaves man with life-threatening burns

September 18, 2011|By Chris Kaltenbach, The Baltimore Sun

A gasoline explosion in the basement of a Brooklyn Park home left a man with life-threatening second- and third-degree burns, Anne Arundel County fire officials said Sunday.

The explosion in the 100 block of Franklin Avenue was reported at 7:16 p.m. Saturday. The 41-year-old victim was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, department spokesman Capt. James Rostek said. No major damage to the house was reported, police said.

Thanks Star and Kojima for this excellent and timely compilation!

During the current and particularly the forthcoming plate movements, this will be an almost constant affair, I fear. Gas lines are everywhere! And it will be after the fact that gas mains are turned off, after the big explosions. People have become dependent upon natural gas, so clean, lines up and down every street. Very scary.

Sheriff: Warnings helped workers reach safety before Okla. gas rig blast; homes evacuated

(no/Associated Press) - A drilling rig contracted by Enid’s Continental Resources burns southeast of Watonga, Okla., Tuesday Sept. 20, 2011. Authorities in Blaine County say an oil rig that exploded near Watonga and forced the evacuation of several homes caused no injuries.

Tuesday, September 20, 2:51 PM

WATONGA, Okla. — Workers at an Oklahoma natural gas rig that exploded had enough prior warning that they were all able to make it to safety, the county sheriff said Tuesday.

About a dozen workers at the well operated by Continental Resources Inc. managed to flee the site before the blast Monday night, Blaine County Sheriff Ricky Ainsworth said. A Continental spokeswoman confirmed there were no injuries.

“It was a very huge fireball coming from the rig, and it’s still burning,” Ainsworth said Tuesday. “It has settled down some, but it’s definitely still burning.”

Continental spokeswoman Kristin Miskovsky said the well could keep burning for several days before the damaged rig can be cleared and the fire extinguished.

The explosion and ensuing fire forced the evacuation of about 20 homes within a two-mile radius, Ainsworth said. Some residents were allowed to return home but those living closest to the rig were not. A shelter was set up at the Blaine County fairgrounds for displaced residents.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, and a well-control team was brought to the site to assess the situation, Miskovsky said.

Patterson-UTI Drilling LLC owns and operates the rig, but Continental Resources is the operator of the well, Miskovsky said.

The great explosions of Iraq's oil fields has started.


What sequence of events will occur up until the severe 270° roll occurs we will hold in abeyance, in order to best discombobulate the establishment. They are still clinging to the notion that they will commandeer all the oil fields of the world, guarded by the US Military, black gold to be used as the next commodity in the future when survivors will sell their children and their freedoms in order to stay warm. Black gold to run the war machines of the world, ensuring world domination to he who owns the oil fields. That Iraq is in tatters and all tapped oil fields will explode into fireballs and all oil tanks likewise rupture and be disbursed has not occurred to these megalomaniacs. They are still clinging to the notion that a passage might happen without the severe Earth changes we have predicted, and want their paper ownership of the world to remain intact until that notion is disproved, utterly. Beach property, the solvency of banks and nations, corporate equity and the false value placed on commodities, all to retain their worth until the shores are awash and the cities in dust. Meanwhile, they lay their plans, prepare for their families, and plot how to enslave the common man whom they assume will be taken by surprise, and therefore be vulnerable. But what is the common man expecting, and aware of? In every culture, in every country, there is some clue of the coming times in folklore and prophecy.

In every case, this leads with the worst, descriptions of the final convulsions the Earth will go through on her way to rebirth. In every case, there are signs to look for when this time draws near. In every case, there is no clear indication of the date. In this regard, ZetaTalk did not differ from what existed in folklore and prophecy, describing the hour of the shift and heralding signs and declining to name a date. We have described increasing weather swings of drought and deluge, switching about for seemingly no reason, since 1995, and these have occurred. We have described earthquakes and volcanic activity increasing on a linear basis up until the last days, with the cover-up of this increase and lack of media attention keeping pace, and this likewise has occurred. We have described problems with maintaining satellites in the months before the pole shift, and this has become apparent to the common man even with extensive backup systems sent aloft to guard against this. We have described what signs the common man should look for, in order to time his escape to safety, and described in great detail what traps to avoid and how to prepare for the Aftertime. Regardless of what sequence of events will occur between now and then, he is armed. The breaches in the sequence of events, however, are designed to disarm the establishment, who will find themselves on a level, a par, with the common man they so disdain.

Oil Rig Explodes in Oklahoma, No Reports of Injuries

Published September 20, 2011 


Authorities in Blaine County say an oil rig that exploded near Watonga and forced the evacuation of several homes caused no injuries.

Blaine County Sheriff's dispatcher C.J. Woulard said Tuesday morning that the fire was still burning -- but no injuries were reported.

County Sheriff Ricky Ainsworth told reporters that homes within a two mile radius were evacuated following the Monday night explosion about 80 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. Ainsworth did not immediately return a phone call for further comment early Tuesday.

Assistant Watonga Fire Chief Verlen Bills told The Oklahoman that the cause of the explosion was not known.

Witness Maria Slay told The Oklahoman that she heard four or five explosions and said workers are at the drilling rig around the clock.
