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

No major injuries reported after explosion at Maine paper mill

Updated 5:15 PM ET, Wed April 15, 2020 

An explosion at Androscoggin Mill was reported Wednesday.
(CNN)A few people suffered minor injuries Wednesday after a large explosion at a paper mill in Jay, Maine, sent debris and plumes of smoke into the air.
The explosion at the Androscoggin Mill in Jay, about 70 miles north of Portland, occurred at the mill's digester area and caused a fire on the roof of that building, Sgt. Joel Davis of the state fire marshal's office told reporters.
"Fortunately nobody works in that area directly," Davis said.

No major injuries were reported, but a few people in the vicinity were treated for "minor respiratory issues" and released, he said.

A spokeswoman for the mill's owner, Pixelle Specialty Solutions, said more than 160 people were working at the time of the explosion but no one was injured.
Gov. Janet Mills acknowledged the explosion earlier Wednesday.

"I ask the people of Maine to join me in praying for the safety and wellbeing of all those in and around this historic mill. In this already difficult moment, let us summon the strength and resilience which has defined us as Maine people throughout our history and which has sustained us and carried us through our most challenging times," the governor tweeted.
The cause of the explosion is under investigation

After several hours of remain trapped, relief agencies also confirmed that there are four other miners injured and are being treated at nearby hospitals of the population.

According to the governor of Cundinamarca, Nicolas Garcia, the explosion is caused by “gas accumulation” where they were working 22 miners. “The mining activity was covered in the exceptions that allows the decree of the national Government,” he told THE COUNTRY the governor on the presence of the workers in the mine. The decree that regulated the confinement required by the coronavirus in Colombia excepted activities “that are strictly necessary to operate and perform the maintenance of indispensable companies, industrial plants, or mines of the public or private sector which by the nature of its production process required to maintain its operation without interruption”.

But the death of 11 miners is not the only one that has happened in the country during the quarantine period. This Friday, six other miners died after an explosion in a mine in Norte de Santander, border with Venezuela. Only one survived and was transferred to the city of Cucuta.

Catawba County: 60 homes damaged in explosion; no serious injuries reported

April 7 2020

There were no serious injuries in an explosion at the OneH2 plant in Long View Tuesday morning, according to Terri Byers, fire education coordinator for the Hickory Fire Department.
The 44 employees on duty at the plant are all accounted for and are safe, according to reports from the scene.
The building, however, was damaged. A press release from Catawba County said the cause of the explosion is still being investigated.

Some nearby houses also sustained damage -- such as broken windows and doors blown out of their frames -- but no residents living in the vicinity of the explosion have been reported injured.
The county press release listed approximately 60 surrounding homes as sustaining mostly minor damage from the explosion. They have all been inspected by Catawba County building inspectors and City of Hickory fire inspectors, according to the release. Only one home has been deemed uninhabitable, and the owner is aware and is being assisted. Affected homeowners are advised to contact their insurance company to begin the reporting process.

Johnathan Wilson lives on 20th Street NW near the plant. He said when the explosion occurred everything fell off the walls of his home and many of his dishes broke. Thankfully, he said he didn't have further damage to his home. "It shook the entire house from left to right," he said. "I've been in earthquakes before, and I thought it was an earthquake." Wilson said the police came by to find out if he had any damage and asked him to stay inside if he could. He said they didn't say why he should stay inside.
Responders are monitoring air quality, the county release stated. Earlier, officials on the scene said emergency officials were monitoring the air in case there was a gas leak. The measure was viewed as precautionary but residents were asked to remain in their homes.
OneH2's website describes the business:
"We deliver hydrogen fuel that's ready for "immediate use" - already converted to high-pressure gaseous fuel that takes only minutes to dispense. Our system monitors your daily fuel usage through web-based telemetics to alert us when to schedule the next fuel delivery and trailer swapout."

An explosion rocked Berlin’s Humboldt Forum museum.

April 7 2020

Berlin’s long-delayed Humboldt Forum museum was the site of a workplace accident Wednesday morning, when two tar cookers exploded, injuring one construction worker and sending up a plume of smoke, the New York Times reports. The accident, which blackened a façade of the museum, has caused further uncertainty regarding its opening, currently scheduled for September.
Construction on the museum began in 2013, and the nearly-$700-million project has since been plagued by delays and controversy. It was scheduled to open in 2019 with a major show centered around ivory artifacts, including works on loan from the Louvre and the Museum of Modern Art, but problems with the Humboldt Forum’s climate control system caused the institutions to rescind their loans, and the show was cancelled. The museum has also come under scrutiny for its possession of several hundred Benin Bronzes, with critics arguing that the works were seized improperly under colonial British rule of what is now Nigeria.
This latest accident compounds the stresses put on the institution, which was already facing uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While construction workers are deemed essential in Germany, the nationwide lockdown may affect attendance numbers come September. This is a problem faced by museums across the world—the Museum of Modern Art, which recently laid off educational staff due to forced closures, noted in an email that “it will be months, if not years, before we anticipate returning to budget and operations levels to require educator services.”
