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

Compressor station explodes near Clark

Thu 2:50 PM, Dec 01, 2016

CLARK, Wyo. (AP) — There are no injuries after a compressor station near the community of Clark in northwest Wyoming exploded.

Clark firefighter Dave Hoffert says the facility owned by Windsor Energy exploded Tuesday night.

Hoffert says that the building housed the natural-gas-fired boiler to heat crude oil exploded.

He says the only explanation for the explosion is a natural gas leak ignited due to some sort of electrical malfunction.

Although most of the steel siding was blown off and the shed's roof crumpled, the boiler and equipment in the shed remained intact.

Hoffert says damage was relatively minor.

Gas explosion in Sydney's Chinatown injures at least 14

Young child and three other people taken to hospital after gas main blast in food court loading dock in Haymarket

Firefighters at the scene of the explosion in Chinatown, Sydney.

A young child and three other people have been taken to hospital after they were injured in a gas main explosion in Sydney’s Chinatown district.

At least 200 people were evacuated from the five-storey building in Haymarket when the explosion occurred in the loading dock of the building’s food court around 7.40pm on Tuesday.

At least 14 people were treated for lacerations from flying debris and other injuries, a New South Wales Fire and Rescue spokesman said.

“It took a couple of seconds to sink in, at the moment, I was just in shock for a while,” one witness told Nine News.

The fire did not spread throughout the building and was contained by sprinklers, he said.

Crews were working with hazmat units to ensure there was no lingering gas in the building, which was expected to be declared safe later on Tuesday night.

“It was just unreal. Everyone was looking around wondering what would happen.

“I think a few thought it was an explosion so they just sort of took back away and assessed what was going on to understand the next move.”

At least seven killed in explosions at power plant, factory in two cities in eastern China

PUBLISHED : Wednesday, 09 November, 2016, 4:46pm
UPDATED : Wednesday, 09 November, 2016, 4:46pm

Two separate explosions ripped through two cities in eastern China on Tuesday, killing at least seven people and injuring a dozen others.

The first explosion occurred at about 9.40am at a thermal power plant at a village near Zibo in Shandong province.

Five people are confirmed to have died in the blast, the village government said in a post on social media. Another nine were injured, but are not in a critical condition, it said.

An ammonia tank at the power plant developed a leak prior to the blast, according to the China News Service.

About 55 tonnes of ammonia contaminated water leaked and flowed into drains at the power plant, it said.

No further pollution was caused to the surrounding environment as the incident was dealt with promptly, according to the article.

The second explosion occurred at an electromechanical factory at an industrial park in Tangshu township in Shucheng county in Anhui province.

Two people died in the blast, three were injured and 10 were still missing, the state-run news agency Xinhua reported.

The three hurt were not said to have life-threatening injuries, the report quoted the local authorities as saying.

Families gathered outside the factory on Wednesday, waiting anxiously for updates about their loved ones. Some passed out with grief, the report said.

Police, firefighters, medical teams and local officials were at the scene supporting the rescue operation.

Investigations into both explosions are continuing
