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

Dramatic footage shows huge gas explosion at Yorkshire home

Residents were rescued from their homes just moments before a massive gas explosion tore through a row of houses in Castleford, West Yorkshire.

9:43PM BST 15 Jul 2011

Footage filmed by West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service shows firefighters narrowly avoiding the full force of a huge explosion which almost demolishes one house and wrecks several others.

Around 30 people were forced to leave their homes in the Hightown area of Castleford after a string of small fires broke out last week.

Residents were evacuated from their homes and ladders were used to take two people from upstairs bedrooms.

Moments later an explosion ripped through the row of terraced homes. Two firefighters suffered minor injuries.

A 27-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the gas explosion which is believed to have been caused by the theft of copper cable.

City of Warren Home Explosion Underscores Need for Natural Gas Safety

 

JACKSON, Mich., Aug. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The home explosion Friday in the City of Warren underscores the need for customers and the public to be aware of the basics of natural gas safety, Consumers Energy said Saturday.

No one was injured in the explosion at 7275 Dodge Avenue, but the home was destroyed.  The Warren police and fire departments and Consumers Energy are investigating the cause of the explosion.  An initial investigation of the incident found that natural gas service had been turned off at the home in April, 2011.  

Utility workers pressure tested the gas line leading to the home and found that it had no leaks.  Consumers Energy is responsible for the safe delivery of natural gas to a customer's meter.  The customer is responsible for safe use of natural gas from the meter to the furnace and other appliances inside the home.

The utility also reminds customers and the public that tampering with natural gas and electric meters or gas lines and power lines in any way can create dangerous situations that result in property damage, serious injuries or even death.

"Safety is our top priority at Consumers Energy.  It is the foundation of service to our customers.  We are committed to helping our 1.7 million gas customers understand the importance of using natural gas safely and providing them with the information they need to do that," said Daniel Malone, senior vice president of distribution and customer operations.  

Specifically, the company's "3 R's" program helps customers to Recognize signs of potential gas leaks, React by getting to a safe location, and then Report by calling Consumers Energy from the safe location at 800-477-5050.  Consumers Energy takes emergency calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and responds promptly to gas leak calls at no charge.

For customers who may have difficulty making a bill payment, a number options are available, including financial aid through PeopleCare, a program offered by Consumers Energy and the Salvation Army.  There also are a number of other other programs and services available at the federal, state and local level.  Customers facing financial difficulties should call Consumers Energy immediately if they anticipate problems paying their energy bill or visit the company's website, www.consumersenergy.com/energyanswers, for information about assistance programs for those in need.  Safety information is also available on the company's website.

Consumers Energy, the principal subsidiary of CMS Energy (NYSE: CMS), provides natural gas and electricity to nearly 6.5 million of the Michigan's 10 million residents in all 68 Lower Peninsula counties.

The Ontario Fire Marshal confirms it was a natural gas explosion that levelled a Brantford home last week. However investigators still haven’t determined the exact cause of the fatal blast.

Nancy Grasso, 56, is believed to have been inside the home at 55 Ruffian Rd. when the explosion happened around 2:30 p.m. on Aug. 25. A body was found in the rubble, but police haven’t confirmed the remains are that of the missing woman.

An autopsy was performed Monday and the results are pending.

“Investigators from the office of the Ontario Fire Marshal’s office have determined that this was an explosion of natural gas,” the fire marshal said in a release this week.

“The underground natural gas system in the neighbourhood is secure and poses no further danger to the area.”

Two adjacent houses remain uninhabitable. Other homes damaged by the blast have been released back to their owners.

Update: Suspected gas explosion levels home in Pompton Lakes [raw video]

Monday, August 29, 2011    Last updated: Tuesday August 30, 2011, 11:04 AM

The blast that turned an evacuated house on a flooded Pompton Lakes street into a ball of fire may have been caused by a gas leak, an event one official said is not uncommon during heavy flooding.

Standing on a flooded street, firefighters spray water on what is left of a Pompton Lakes home leveled by a suspected gas explosion.

Standing on a flooded street, firefighters spray water on what is left of a Pompton Lakes home leveled by a suspected gas explosion.

Investigators suspect the explosion that leveled the single-family house at 1518 Lincoln Ave. began with a gas leak. The 6:35 a.m. blast rattled the neighborhood and sent up a plume of flames and thick smoke. No one was inside at the time and no injuries were reported, said Pompton Lakes Police Chief David Struyk said. A neighbor across the street dialed 911, he said.

Gas leaks pose a greater danger during flood emergencies but their threat is largely overlooked, according to State Police Sgt. Robert Little, the operations chief for the state emergency operations center.

The first firefighters to arrive using small boats found the house engulfed in flames and surrounded by four to five feet of water, said Al Evangelista, Pompton Lakes emergency operations coordinator.

If you smell gas
  • PSE&G customers should call 800-436-7734.
  • Orange & Rockland customers should call 800-533-5325.

After determining that the house was vacant, firefighters hit the blaze with water to keep it from spreading to neighboring houses before pulling out because of the dangers posed by leaking gas and downed electrical wires in the area, Evangelista said.

White smoke from the smoldering wreckage of the house could still be seen hours after the explosion from a command post set up several blocks away. Public utilities workers were at the scene to shut off gas and electric service to the area.

The statewide inland flooding in the last 48 hours has been worsened by earlier rain in August, state climatologist David Robinson said Monday.

That rain softened the ground and allowed trees to uproot more easily. Those u

SOMERVILLE, Ohio -- Wayne Township firefighters believe an explosion contributed to the collapse of a house at 6841 Waynes Trace Road.  Neighbors reported that the windows were blown out, and the front of the house collapsed.

Some neighbors, Jerry and Linda Dingledine, heard a loud explosion-like noise around 11 p.m. Monday.  They did not report it until Tuesday when the saw the damage. 

The homeowners, Catherine and James Johnson, were not home. They left around 6 p.m. Monday to visit a relative overnight. 

Deputies say there was a propane smell when firefighters arrived.

The incident is being investigated by the state fire marshal, Butler County Sheriff, Butler County Bomb Squad, and the Wayne Township Fire Department.  No criminal intent is suspected.
