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

Explosion in a Florida mall destroys local businesses, leaves at least 21 injured

July 7, 2019 at 7:59 AM

The blast happened in the city of Plantation. Its cause could be gas leakage from a pipeline since firefighters found damaged gas pipes.

An explosion in a Florida mall took place at around 11.30am local time at a shopping plaza in Broward County of central Florida. The explosion destroyed a restaurant that had been out of business for quite some time. An adjacent gym also suffered damage. The blast left at least 21 people injured, none of them suffered life-threatening injuries. The pizza restaurant became a mound of rubble and many nearby businesses felt the impact with debris flung into the air causing consequential damage to nearby properties.

When firefighters arrived, they discovered broken gas pipes. The authorities remained tight-lipped about the cause of the explosion.

Sky News quotes a witness as saying he initially thought the blast to be thunder but soon the building began to shake. In his words – “it was almost like the world was ending.” Another witness talked about a flash of light that lit up the sky while yet another said it resembled an apocalypse. The force of the blast sent remnants of the building flying in all directions damaging some cars parked nearby.

The explosion remains a mystery

The police indicated injuries to at least 21 people and assured that none of those were life-threatening. The explosion destroyed a restaurant in Florida that had closed down some months back and blew out the windows of a gym.

This was located at the shopping plaza in Broward County. There were people in the gym at the time and the result of the explosion could have been more serious. As an official of the Plantation fire department said, "Thank goodness, at this point, nobody was killed. As bad as it is, it could have been a lot worse.”

Sky News adds that teams of firefighters searched the rubble with the help of sniffer dogs to ensure that there was no one trapped underneath the rubble.

Gas explosion suspected

According to CNN, the explosion in a shopping mall in Florida has taken the authorities by surprise. Plantation Fire Department indicated in the initial stages about investigating the possibilities of this being a gas explosion. However, they later backtracked and said more work is required to establish the exact cause. Plantation Fire Deputy Chief Joel Gordon admitted that there was evidence of an active gas leak at the scene when firefighters arrived after receiving a report of an explosion.

Police have completed a search of the blast zone and confirmed there were no fatalities and all the victims have been located. The injured were shifted to hospitals. The location of the incident appears to be in a corner of the mall complex at the intersection of two buildings. Witnesses mentioned a chaotic scene following the explosion, with shattered windows and scattered debris all over the place. Plantation police said that all stores and businesses in the area will remain closed until further notice.

That clearance will be given by fire personnel after confirming that it is safe to return.

Suspected gas line explosion in Vienna seriously injures at least two people

June 26, 2019, 1:11 PM EDT

At least one building partially collapsed due to the late-afternoon blast in Austria's capital.

A suspected gas-line explosion injured at least 12 people, two of them seriously, and partially collapsed an apartment building in Vienna on Wednesday, police said.

The blast happened at 4:30 p.m. local time, on Pressgasse Street in the center of the Austrian capital, authorities said.

"In explosion in the Pressgasse, at least 4 people were seriously injured, and multiple people lightly," according to an initial statement by Vienna police. "The area is widely closed off. Please stay away!"

That injury figure was later adjusted to two serious injuries and 10 with minor wounds, police said.

At least 22 apartments, with 44 residents registered to those units, have been damaged by the explosion, officials said. More than 100 firefighters and 50 officers are on the scene and two buildings have been evacuated, police said.

The explosion came as the city was already dealing with unseasonably hot weather. The mercury soared to the 95 in Vienna on Wednesday and was expected to be in the 90s again on Thursday.

“Vienna is going through a crazy heat wave right now, so there's already been sort of an emergency response in other areas so it was already a crazy day before this happened," neighborhood resident Leora Courtney-Wolfman told NBC News.

Courtney-Wolfman, a 34-year-old Canadian expatriate, was on her way home to a flat about 200 yards from the blast when the neighborhood shook.

“Just the fact that I could have been there. We had guests visiting with us just last week and they walked up and down that street," she said.

At least 9 injured in gas explosion near Rome

ROME - A gas explosion at a building housing the town hall of Rocca di Papa, 25 kilometres southeast of Rome, left at least nine people injured, including mayor Emanuele Crestini, who has extensive burns to the face and arms, ANSA reported Monday.

The explosion also affected nearby nursery school Leonida Montanari, leaving three children injured. One of them was taken to a hospital with severe injuries, but his life is not in danger, health commissioner Alessio D'Amato said in a statement.

Initial information from the fire brigade suggested that the explosion occurred due to a gas leaking caused by workers who chopped through a gas main in the street. The explosion destroyed the facade of the municipality building and threw glass and masonry toward the nursery school, which injured the children.

After the incident, residents were evacuated and the area was sealed off, sources told the Italian news agency.

Still according to ANSA, prosecutors have opened a probe into ‘culpable disaster’ and culpable grievous bodily harm (GBH) against person or persons unknown.
