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

'Explosion on Paris metro' as dozens of passengers are evacuated from smoke-filled station

Up to eight people are reported to have been injured in the incident, in or near to the the Place d'Italie subway stop

  • 21:20, 8 FEB 2017
  • UPDATED22:26, 8 FEB 2017



A 'huge explosion' has been reported on the Paris metro leading to dozens of passengers being evacuated from a station.

The incident, on Line 6 in or near to the the Place d'Italie subway stop, appears to have been caused by an electrical fire, but has raised fresh terror fears as France remains on high alert.

As many as eight passengers are believed to have been injured in the explosion, either in the apparent blast or from smoke inhalation.

It is unclear at this time what caused the incident, but security personnel are believed have sealed off the area.

Dozens of armed police are at the scene around the Place d'Italie as the situation is investigated.

Early reports suggest the explosion was caused by an electrical fire and that eight people have been injured.

France remains on a high state of alert after last Friday's suspect terror attack at the Louvre in Paris in which soldiers shot an Egyptian man wielding a machete.

Abdullah Reda al-Hamamy was shot several times after he allegedly attacked soldiers outside the museum - home to the Mona Lisa and other famous works of art - with a machete and cried "Allahu Akbar"

The soldiers can been seen in footage of the incident standing anxiously above him pointing their guns following the attack.

The victim is now being treated for serious injuries in hospital after soldiers fired five shots during the suspected terror attack.

Soldiers patrolling as part of France’s on-going State of Emergency stopped the attacker getting into the building.

The country has suffered a number of horrifying terror attacks over the past two years, including the Charlie Hebdo murders in Paris and the Nice lorry massacre.

President Francois Hollande had declared a state of emergency in France and war on terrorism after the attacks shook the country to its core.

The country has been living in fear of a fresh attack by jihadis, but tonight's explosion is not currently thought to be terror-related

11:11 CET+01:00
Bergen Police on Wednesday were investigating the cause of an explosion at the Ytre Arna asylum centre the previous evening.
No one was injured in the relatively powerful explosion that took place in a living room in the reception centre. The explosion caused serious structural damage, however - including blowing out multiple windows and damaging walls. 
Two foreign men were arrested and charged in the case and were expected to be questioned by police on Wednesday.
“They are indicted in the case based on the circumstances of the events and because they were located in the room where the explosion took place,” Western Police District spokesman Frode Kolltveit said on Tuesday evening. 
Exactly what caused the explosion, which occurred just after 5.30pm on Tuesday, was not known as of midday on Wednesday. 
“People from [the police] bomb squad and crime scene technicians were there last night. They found no traces of explosives, so there will be further investigations throughout the day [on Wednesday] to determine the cause of the explosion,” police spokesman Arve Samsonsen told NTB.
Police told NTB that investigators believe the explosion probably occurred in or around a stove. But what the stove had been used for is not known, nor do police know for sure who was involved. It was also not immediately known if the explosion was caused by chemicals or something electronic. 
Between 15 and 20 people live at the asylum centre and they were evacuated from the site.

Fire under control after China chemical plant explosion, no injuries

A fire after an explosion at a chemical plant in Tongling city in the eastern Chinese province of Anhui was brought under control and no injuries were reported, state media said on Thursday.

The official Tongling Daily said on its microblog that the blast happened late on Wednesday evening, sending flames shooting into the sky.

"At present there are no injuries or deaths," it said. "The fire caused by the explosion has been effectively controlled."

Deadly accidents are relatively common at industrial plants in China.

China has vowed to improve safety at such facilities. President Xi Jinping has said authorities would learn the lessons paid for with blood after chemical blasts in the port city of Tianjin killed 165 people in 2015.

Massive chemical explosion at Spanish chlorine factory as potentially toxic gases released into the air

Authorities are concerned that the toxic gases could have been released during the explosion

  • 09:26, 8 FEB 2017
  • UPDATED09:33, 8 FEB 2017

A massive explosion at a Spanish chlorine factory has sparked fears toxic gases could have been released into the air.

Dramatic footage from the scene shows huge flames and plumes of thick, black smoke after the factory ignited

The factory is located on the Fuente del Jarro industrial estate in Paterna, near Valencia, Spanish news site Cadenaser.com reports.

It is believed that the part of the factory where the explosion occurred, shortly after 9.30am local time (8.30 GMT), is the area where chlorine is manufactured.

It is not known yet whether any employees were inside the building at the time of the incident.

Local police have blocked off access to the factory and are currently deciding whether to evacuate the rest of the buildings.

UPDATE: People feel and hear Akron house explosion Tuesday night from 3 miles away. One man injured

Published: February 7, 2017 - 08:22 PM


One man was injured when a home exploded Tuesday evening on Courtland Avenue at the intersection of South Hawkins Avenue in West Akron.

The blast was so forceful people as far as 3 miles away felt and heard it. Akron Fire Department spokesman Michael Brooks said when firefighters responded to neighbors’ calls about the explosion at 7:39 p.m. they found the house flattened and burning and the 30- to 40-year-old man in the yard bleeding and covered in burns.

The man, whose identity has not been confirmed, was transported to Cleveland Clinic Akron General for treatment. His condition was not known.

Brooks said firefighters were unaware of anyone else in the home or any other person who was injured by the blast.

However, a cat was rescued and treated by paramedics at the scene. Brooks said it was not clear whether the cat was from the burning home.

Pieces of the house including window frames were blown onto Courtland and South Hawkins, littering the street and adjoining properties. It was all that remained of the house. The wind carried black smoke and strong fumes over several blocks north of ground zero.

The intersection was closed Tuesday night.

Firefighters are investigating, but Brooks said the explosion was likely caused by natural gas.

People were evacuated from nearby homes, and gas and electric workers were on the scene as late at 9:30 p.m. trying to cut off the gas as the fire burned on.

Nanette Perryman, who lives a mile away on Copley Road, thought a car had hit her house when she heard the explosion.

“I went outside to see what happened, and there was nothing there,” she said. “I had to walk all this way to see what it was.”

Also curious was Aaron Jenkins, who lives 3 miles away on St. Michaels Avenue.

“My wife said, ‘Did you feel that?’ And I said ‘I sure did.’ ’’ Jenkins said. “I came down to see what it was.”

They stood with others as firefighters worked to contain the fire on the ground in the center of the property. It was still burning as late at 9:15 p.m.

Panola County Airport closed due to pipeline explosion

KYTX 5:26 PM. CST February 02, 2017

PANOLA COUNTY - Airport manager John Depresca Jr says a pipeline ruptured on the runway, causing the explosion.

The pipeline carried natural gas that shot up through the air. The runway is damaged and Depresca has closed the airport for a month.

Crews are currently working on repairing the line, but until it is fixed there won't be any flights in or out of the airport.
Depresca says he actually thought it was a plane crash at first because of the loud sound.
No injuries were reported.
