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

2 missing, 20 + injured as massive blasts hit TNT plant in Russia’s Dzerzhinsk city Published 1 Jun, 2019

Two people are missing and at least 20 were injured when three large blasts rocked a TNT plant in Dzerzhinsk in Central Russia. The shockwave damaged several buildings, and a huge plume of smoke is hovering over the city.

The blasts were so powerful that people even heard them in Bogorodsk, another city, some 15 km away. Meanwhile, residents in Dzershinsk saw large plumes of grey smoke rising above the city streets. Witnesses said that the shockwave from the explosions shattered windows in nearby buildings.

This is not the first time explosions had happened at the same TNT-maker. On April 4, a blast brought down one of its one-story structures. It took an hour to put down the fire, and, luckily, no one got hurt that day. A much deadlier explosion occurred in the plant in August, when five of its workers were killed.

Lidgate gas explosion: Two dead in Suffolk bungalow blast

  • 7 May 2019

Two people have died in a suspected gas explosion which destroyed a bungalow.

The rear of the home was blown out by a series of explosions at the property in The Street in Lidgate, near Newmarket in Suffolk.

Crews began tackling the blaze at about midday and specialist dogs were later brought in after two people were "unaccounted for".

The cause of the explosion is unknown and a joint fire and police investigation is taking place.

Officers said the fire was believed to have been caused by a gas explosion.

One neighbour said it rattled the windows of homes further along the road, and described it as a "huge explosion".

Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said it had sent four crews to deal with the blaze.

Fire officers had spent the afternoon trying to establish the whereabouts of the two missing people.

Incident commander Darren Reeve said: "We are working extremely hard to try and identify if we have anyone in or not."

Police said the road was likely to remain closed "for quite some time".

Series of 'apocalyptic' explosions at Tata steelworks in Port Talbot leave at least two people injured as photos show huge mushroom cloud rising above the plant


Photos posted online apparently showed a huge mushroom cloud over the plant after a blast

A huge cloud of orange smoke is pictured above houses in Port Talbot after three explosions rocked the nearby Tata steelworks in the early hours

A series of 'apocalyptic' explosions at the Tata steelworks in Port Talbot rocked the Welsh town in the early hours of this morning, injuring two people.   

Residents heard three blasts at around 3.35am, while photos on social media showed a mushroom cloud of smoke rising into the sky above the plant. Bright flashes could also be seen in video shared online.   

Police believe the fire started inside a train carrying molten metal into the site, which is the UK's largest steelworks, triggering further blazes nearby.   

Tata Steel said they 'dealt with an incident at our Port Talbot site' but only two people suffered 'minor' injuries'. 

They later added: 'We can confirm there are no serious injuries and all employees have been accounted for. All fires are now under control.'

The plant, which Tata took over from Corus Steel in 2007, employs 4,000 people. 

Residents took to social media to share their shock over the scale of the explosions.

Local Mathew Kearney said the blast was 'the loudest thing I've ever heard'.

He wrote: 'Woke me sharply, and continued to crash as I came to. Plagued now with worry about the works. Can hear helicopters above now. Surreal, this. Hope everyone is okay. '  

Laura Morris described 'apocalyptic scenes'. She said: 'I hope from whatever has happened at the Steel Works Port Talbot, that everyone is ok.'

Witness Lance Davies told Sky News: 'It sounded like thunder at first and that's what woke me up.

'I heard one explosion and that drew my attention to the window and so I went to look outside the window and there were two more explosions. 

'It was a big bubble of orange flame and a cloud of smoke that looked like a mushroom.' 

One woman who lives nearby told Good Morning Britain: 'I woke up hearing three really loud explosions. It sounded like a bomb had gone off.'

A man who lives in the area told the programme: 'It was about 3.35 in the morning I heard three separate explosions. One louder bang and then two others. 

'The actual house shook slightly. When I went up to the local garage 10 minutes later, they rang the police because they thought someone was breaking in.'

Despite the scale of the blast, South Wales Police said they believe only two people suffered 'minor' injuries.

Violent Manhole Explosions Rattle Midtown Manhattan; 4 Hurt

Several buildings were evacuated, including Chelsea Day School, because of elevated carbon monoxide levels in the area

April 24 2019

A series of manhole explosions rattled midtown Manhattan Wednesday, making people jump with sudden booms as black smoke billowed out from underground.

Four people, a building supervisor and three firefighters, were hurt in the fires, which erupted underground on 32nd Street shortly before 10 a.m. All were expected to be OK. Con Edison was called to turn off power in the area, and first responders shut down 32nd Street between Fifth and Madison avenues.

The building at the site of the initial manhole fire was evacuated. Others nearby, including Chelsea Day School, were also evacuated after elevated carbon monoxide levels were detected. That can happen with manhole fires, officials said.

A gas explosion yesterday at a petrochemical plant in the Formosa Plastics Group (FPG, 台塑集團) naphtha cracker complex in Yunlin County’s Mailiao Township (麥寮) sparked a fire, but there were no casualties, a FPG executive said.

The blast was triggered by a leak of liquefied petroleum gas, said Chen Wen-yang (陳文仰), a deputy director in FPG’s Mailiao management division.

The explosion occurred at an aromatics production factory run by Formosa Chemicals & Fibre Corp (台灣化纖) at about 2pm, and the blast was heard by people living up to 6km away, local firefighters said.

It was followed by a dense plume of smoke rising into the sky.

The fire was reported to the Yunlin County Fire Department at 2:05pm and fire trucks and ambulances from several brigades were dispatched to the plant.

When they arrived 20 minutes later, a fire was blazing, the firefighters said.

The blaze was quickly brought under control, Chen said.

Operations at the aromatics factory have been suspended to allow for a complete inspection of its pipelines, he added.

The Yunlin County Government, which ordered the factory to be immediately shut down for the investigation, said it would impose a NT$5 million (US$162,248) fine on the company for contravening the Air Pollution Control Act (空氣污染防制法).

It demanded that FPG replace old pipelines and equipment in the naphtha cracker complex.

The group should also take full responsibility for the repairs of nearby fish ponds and residential properties damaged by the explosion, the country government said.
