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

Iran-Turkey Gas Exports Halted After Pipeline Explosion

Natural gas exports from Iran to Turkey have been halted after an explosion and fire at a pipeline on the Turkish side of the border. Iranian officials say terrorists attacked the pipeline, while Turkish security forces have not yet made a statement on the cause of the explosion.
“The explosion occurred at a natural gas pipeline inside Turkey near Iran's Bazargan border and stopped gas exports to Turkey from 06:50 Tuesday morning,” Director of National Iranian Gas Company, Mehdi Jamshidi Dana told the state news agency IRNA.
Dana added that the Iranian gas pipeline exploded several times on Turkish soil, adding that in most cases, the PKK – a Kurdish terrorist organization – was responsible.
Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency confirmed that a blast near the Gurbulak crossing, known as Bazargan on the Iranian side, in the Agri province damaged the pipeline and halted the flow of natural gas. Firefighters extinguished the flame caused by the explosion, the report said, adding that military forces had secured the area. An investigation is ongoing to find out what caused the explosion.

Explosion hits gas pipeline in Turkey’s east

Mar 31 2020 01:12 Gmt+3
Last Updated On: Mar 31 2020 01:14 Gmt+3

An explosion has damaged a pipeline carrying natural gas from Iran to Turkey near the Gürbulak border crossing point in the Turkish province of Ağrı, Gazete Duvar reported.
A fire that broke out after the explosion was extinguished by cutting the gas flow as authorities investigated the cause.
Turkish security forces have not yet made a statement on the cause of the explosion, but Duvar quoted an official from Iran’s state-run energy company as saying terrorists had attacked the pipeline.
When a Turkish armoured vehicle came under rocket attack in the same part of Ağrı early in March, the Interior Ministry also blamed terrorists, likely referring to militants from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party, which has fought for Kurdish self-rule in Turkey for decades.

13 injured, 70 houses damaged as explosion rocks Akure

On March 29, 20204:14 am

13 persons including worshippers were yesterday injured while over 70 houses were damaged in an early hour explosion which rocked Akure, Ondo State capital, to its foundation. The blast, which occurred at about 1am along Owo- Akure highway, few metres from the Akure Airport, cut off the road and formed crater that prevented vehicular movement to the northern part of the state.

Motorists had to make a detour through Ilu -Abo community to reconnect to the highway. Dynamites used to blast rocks and for use in quarry were said to be in transit to Edo State from Oyo when the vehicle conveying them developed mechanical fault. The fault reportedly emitted fire under the vehicle which later caused a spark and ignited the dynamites. Mostly affected were a church housing over 18 structures and Aina Awwal Int’l School with no fewer than ten structures opposite the church. But for the closure of schools and the ban on religious activities by the state government following the outbreak of COVID 19 pandemic, the casualty occasioned by the blast would have been better imagined. The effect of the explosion was reportedly felt over 10 kilometres away from the scene of the blast. Buildings mostly destroyed by the explosion include those at Aina Awwal International College which is a full boarding school and a popular church in Akure, “Possibility Prayer Ground for All Nation Church”. Speaking with newsmen, the Principal of Aina Awwal International College, Roland Kayode, said: “ We thank God that no life was lost considering the impact of the blast. I received a call around 1:20am from security guards who said something had happened in the school and that all the buildings had collapsed but couldn’t explain what led to the collapse. He couldn’t explain very well because he was shivering and devastated.

“I had to rush down here and, on getting here and learnt that a vehicle was conveying some explosives and broke down opposite the school, nobody could ascertain where the vehicle was coming from. “The security guard explained that he saw some men who parked their vehicle and that they opened the bonnet of the vehicle trying to fix the vehicle. “He said he waved his searchlight at them but said the three men who were fixing the vehicle started to run for safety and met some policemen who were on the highway and told them about the situation while they all ran for safety and there was an explosion that led to all that we are seeing now.

At least 15 killed as gas explosion destroys 50 houses in Lagos, Nigeria

Mar 15, 2020

n explosion at a gas processing plant on Sunday killed at least 15 people and destroyed about 50 buildings after a fire broke out in a suburb of Lagos, Nigeria's commercial capital, emergency services said.
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said the explosion was triggered after a truck hit some gas cylinders stacked in a gas processing plant near the corporation's pipeline in Abule Ado area of Lagos state.
The impact of the explosion led to the collapse of nearby houses, damaged NNPC's pipeline and caused the corporation to halt pumping operations on the Atlas Cove-Mosimi pipeline, the state-owned oil company said in a statement.
"15 bodies have been recovered now. So many people have been injured," National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) spokesman Ibrahim Farinloye told Agence France-Presse (AFP), adding that around 50 buildings were also destroyed in the explosion which was followed by a fire.
The blast happened at around 8:00 am (0700 GMT) destroyed around 50 buildings in the residential district of Abule Ado. Plumes of smoke billowed into the air as people watched, while firefighters tried to quench the flames, a Reuters witness said.
"We are recovering dead bodies as we speak and putting them in bags," said local Red Cross official Adebola Kolawale.
"We have a school here and it's a residential area. And we have a trade fair here as well," Kolawale said.
In front of a crowd of onlookers, rescue workers sought to remove rubble from a girls boarding school which has more than 250 pupils.

Explosions of pipelines and tanker trucks are frequent occurrences in Nigeria, where most people live in poverty even though the country is the biggest producer of oil on the continent, with around 2 million barrels per day.
Some accidents happen when residents try to siphon off oil or petrol from pipelines or when tanker drivers have accidents on the country's ill-maintained roads.
NNPC said that the temporary shutdown of the petroleum products pipeline would not affect the normal supply of products to the Lagos and surrounding towns.

An explosion occurred in one of the workshops of the Arsenal arms factory in the city of Myglij, Bulgaria, according to the media outlet bTV.
Three people have suffered injuries in an explosion at an arms factory in Bulgaria, the BGNES news agency reported on Wednesday.
According to the agency, the incident took place at 9:00 a.m. local time (07:00 GMT) at section 130 of the Arsenal plant in the town of Maglizh, with the explosion said to have been caused by the detonation of the plant's production.
The blast seriously damaged the building by creating a crater and almost completely destroying the plant's warehouse.
There are currently reports of three victims being transported to the emergency centre in the nearby town of Kazanlak.
According to eyewitnesses, there was extensive damage to the property.
This is not the first incident to have struck the factory.
On 17 October 2018, an incident occurred at Workshop 120 in Arsenal's Plant 3. At that time, the accident sent six workers to hospital; one of them was seriously injured.
In April 2016, two workers were injured after a blast caused by a press machine at Arsenal Plant 3. In late May 2016, a 52-year-old worker was killed following an explosion at an Arsenal AD Plant 4, a site located in Mist.
Arsenal AD is a strategic site and its activities are related to Bulgaria's national security.
