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

Ukraine. A breakdown at a nitrogen plant in Rivne. Orange cloud over the city

A breakdown at a nitrogen plant in Rivne, western Ukraine. The company has reported a one-time nitrous gas leak and the situation is under control. Earlier, the media reported an explosion. On the other hand, videos on social media show a red cloud heading towards the city.

Incident at the Riwne Azot factory in Rivne in the West Ukraine. The head of the regional authorities, Vitaly Koal, wrote on Facebook that the unit at the plant that produces nitric acid has been stopped in case of emergency. Kowal said that the environmental inspection to deal with threat assessment.

Witnesses reported that a red cloud was moving towards the city, the Ukrainian Prawda website wrote. Orange nitric oxide is toxic and can cause eye irritation, coughing, and respiratory illness.

Collapse of nitrogen plants in western Ukraine. “There is no danger”

The company’s press office told Ukrinform that the effects of the emergency had already been completely canceled and no one was affected. According to the company, the air quality indicators are normal and there is no danger to the population and the natural environment.

It was added that there was a pipeline depressurization at the nitric acid plant. “As a result of the exceptional situation, there was a one-time leak of nitrous gases in a small amount on the premises of the stations” – the statement states.

A spokesperson for the local emergency services confirmed to Radio Soboda that the waste collection process had been halted. He noted that “there were no explosions,” although some media outlets reported the explosion. – We informed the environmental inspection to take air samples – added the spokesperson. Radio Trek, in turn, said there was a “little fanfare”. It was later added that a nitrogen gas leak had occurred.

Fire breaks out at CenterPoint Energy substation in northwest Houston


A large fire at a CenterPoint Energy substation in northwest Houston prompted a shelter-in-place order for several hours Friday.

But officials say the mineral oil that burned at the facility near Brittmore and Kempwood poses no threat of exposure to the community.

The Houston Fire Department said the fire at the Addicks Substation was contained about two-and-a-half hours after firefighters received calls of the incident at 9:44 a.m.

Firefighters were performing a defensive attack on the flames, and additional units from HFD's Hazmat and Rehab unit were called.

Fire erupts on ship, causing explosion that rocks Dubai

The blaze sent up giant orange flames on a vessel at the crucial Jebel Ali Port, the busiest in the Middle East, which sits on the eastern side of the Arabian Peninsula. The combustion unleashed a shock wave through the city, shaking buildings and windows in neighborhoods as far as 25 kilometers (15 miles) away from the port.

There were no immediate reports of casualties at the port, which is also the busiest port of call for American warships outside of the U.S. Early Thursday, the Dubai government issued a statement saying that emergency services had brought the blaze under control. Authorities posted footage on social media of firefighters dousing giant shipping containers. The glow of the blaze was visible in the background as civil defense crews worked to contain the fire.

The extent of damage caused to the sprawling port and surrounding cargo was not immediately clear. The cause of the fire also was not immediately known. Port officials said they were "taking all necessary measures to ensure that the normal movement of vessels continues without any disruption."

Mona al-Marri, director general of Dubai Media Office, told Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV that this incident "could happen anywhere in the world" and that the government's communication office worked to issue statements quickly to avert rumors from spreading as the cause of the fire is being investigated.

At around 11:45 p.m. residents of Dubai recording with their phones from high-rises posted frantic videos on social media showing a fiery ball illuminating the night sky.

The Jebel Ali Port at the northern end of Dubai is the largest man-made deep-water harbor in the world and serves cargo from the Indian subcontinent, Africa and Asia.

Operated by the Dubai-based DP World, the port has four sprawling container terminals that can berth some of the world's largest ships. The port is not only a critical global cargo hub, but a lifeline for Dubai and surrounding emirates, serving as the point of entry for essential imports

DP World describes Jebel Ali Port as a "gateway hub" and a "vital link in the global trade network" that connects eastern and western markets. The company did not immediately issue any public statement on the blast.

The Pentagon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

LIVE: LAPD, ATF investigating South Los Angeles explosion; 17 hurt in blast

Thursday, July 1, 2021 6:55AM

A Los Angeles police bomb squad truck was destroyed from the blast and the vehicle remained on the street in the 700 block of East 27th Street near San Pedro Street Thursday morning as investigators worked to retain the integrity of the scene.LIVE: LAPD, ATF investigating South Los Angeles explosion; 17 hurt in blast

A national ATF team was expected to arrive to conduct their investigation.

"This was completely unexpected. They followed all the protocols in place. It was not really one of these explosions that was unplanned. This was planned," LAPD Lt. Raul Jovel said at a press conference Thursday morning.

Officials say the material being inside the LAPD truck made the blast more dangerous.

"You put a destructive device inside a closed container where it's pressurized, when it blows up, that is a big punch," Jovel said. "If some of these devices were to explode in the open, the impact would be a lot less because the blast would really go in all directions."

VIDEO: Terrified residents describe South LA explosion
An explosion rocked a South L.A. neighborhood, damaging nearby homes and cars and leaving at least 17 people injured after an illegal fireworks seizure.

Aerial footage from AIR7 HD showed first responders treating injured residents at the scene Wednesday night.

Officials say those injured include 10 LAPD officers, who were all described as in fair condition with minor injuries; one Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives officer in fair condition with minor injuries; six civilians - three with moderate injuries and three with minor injuries. One patient did not need to be transported.

Several homes in the area were also damaged and city officials were evaluating them to determine if they were structurally sound.

Earlier in the day, the LAPD seized at least 5,000 pounds of illegal fireworks from a home. At a news conference Wednesday night, LAPD Chief Michel Moore said work was being done throughout the day to move illegal commercial-grade fireworks to an offsite location.

During the operation, 40 coke-can-sized improvised explosive devices with fuses and 200 additional smaller devices with similar construction were found. The material was transferred to a "total containment vehicle" with an iron chamber, which is designed to house explosive material that can be safely detonated.

When the items were detonated shortly after 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Moore said there was a "total catastrophic failure of that containment vehicle."

"Clearly protocols were followed and pursued, but something happened in that containment vehicle that should have not happened and we don't know why, but we intend to find out why," Moore said.

Homes, cars and a laundromat had windows shattered and one vehicle had its side plowed in and was knocked over by the force of the blast.

Residents told Eyewitness News they felt the blast from inside a building more than a quarter-mile away.

"I was asleep when I felt like the whole bed was shaking. It felt like a really hard earthquake," one resident said. "It sounded huge."

"Everybody started running, and I couldn't find my mom... Everybody was screaming, going crazy," said 14-year-old Maricela Cortes, who was near the blast with her mother and 6-year-old sister.

MORE: LAPD seizes 5,000 pounds of illegal fireworks from South LA home

The LAPD seized at least 5,000 pounds of illegal fireworks from a South L.A. home Wednesday afternoon.

Police say they discovered the massive cache at a home on 27th Street after Newton Division officers received a tip. At least 5,000 pounds of fireworks were stored in the home, which is located in a residential neighborhood near an elementary school.
A bomb squad was called to the scene to secure and remove dozens of boxes filled with fireworks, which were set to be hauled away and destroyed with the help of Cal Fire.

One man, identified as Arturo Cejas III, was arrested on suspicion of possessing a destructive device but he also may face charges of child endangerment because his 10-year-old brother was in the home, Moore said.

"We understand that this explosive material was acquired out of state and transported here for the purposes of reselling it to community members and neighbors," Moore said.

The explosion prompted police to evacuate nearby residents. Prior to the blast, only two homes had been evacuated.

"I would expect multiple houses destroyed had those explosives gone up," LAPD Capt. Robert Long told Eyewitness News before the explosion.

In March, a fireworks explosion at an Ontario home killed two people.
ABC News and the Associated Press contributed to this report.

A fireball explodes out from a Chemtool plant in Rockton, Illinois, as firefighters battle the blaze

A massive explosion and fire at a Chemtool plant in Rockton, Illinois forced the evacuation of residents within a mike of the facility.

The explosion occurred Monday morning around 7:30am.

According to MyStateline.com, Chemtool produces fluids, lubricants and grease products.

An evacuation of the area was ordered by fire officials who feared potentially hazardous chemicals may have been leaked into the air.

No injuries have been reported.

Chemtool released a statement on Monday addressing the blaze.

“We have confirmed all on site are safe and accounted for. Our concern right now is for the safety of all our employees and the surrounding community. As a precaution, authorities have evacuated residents in a one-mile radius of the site,” the company said.

The company said it was working to help solve the problem.
