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

Five seriously injured in downtown Rochester explosion, including three children

At least seven people were injured in an explosion in downtown Rochester Saturday evening, that happened outside of 423 Main Bar Grill & Rooftop. 

Rochester Fire Chief John Cieslik said there were five patients transported with injuries, including three children. Two others were treated at the scene and released. 

Cieslik said there is no outdoor dining at the restaurant where the explosion happened, and it is unclear why they were lighting the heater. 

"It just rattled everyone in the restaurant," Mark Mendola, the owner of D'Marcos Restaurant, said.

Several emergency vehicles blocked roads near N. Main Street and E. University around 9 p.m. 

Cieslik said it was a stroke of luck that an EMS unit from Rochester Hills just happened to be passing by as the explosion happened and started to triage patients immediately.

Guinea (West Africa) explosion: Huge oil depot fire leaves 18 dead and over 200 injured in Conakry as shocking footage reveals how towering fireball damaged buildings almost a mile away

Fire burns after a blast at an oil terminal in Conakry, Guinea, on December 18

The main oil depot in Guinea has exploded, leaving 18 dead and hundreds injured - with a fireball from the blast damaging buildings almost a mile away.

Foreign rescue and aid workers, along with the UN and volunteers, worked tirelessly to help victims of the explosion at the state oil company's main depot in the Kaloum district of the capital, Conakry, near the port.

The incident on Monday morning at the Guinean Petroleum Company depot killed 18 people, injured 212 others and prompted concerns about fuel supplies.

People look at the explosion site from behind the safety barrier on Tuesday

Firemen work to extinguish the flames after a blast at Guinea's main oil terminal

The explosion, whose cause is still unknown, wreaked damage to buildings over a radius of more than one kilometre (0.6 miles).

Windows were shattered in several buildings in the port area, including a modern district which is home to banks and insurance companies.

The fire was brought under control later that afternoon but smoke was still rising from the site the next day and soldiers were preventing traffic from entering.

A legal investigation has been opened to establish the cause and responsibilities of the incident.

The government said in a statement: 'Despite the efforts by medical teams, we lament four new deaths today, bringing the total to 18.'

'Of the 212 people treated by health workers, 127 have returned to their homes and 85 people are still hospitalised, including four in intensive care.'

The government warned locals to brace for power cuts in the aftermath.

It added that 13 fuel storage tanks were out of service while five tanks were unaffected.

Dozens of people came forward to help in whatever way they could.

One person missing after 'explosion' sparks huge inferno at South Wales (UK) industrial estate, police reveal: 'Major incident' declared, with roads shut and people told not to go to A&E as cops and firefighters rush to scene

Huge plumes of smoke rising over the building are visible from afar

Fears are growing that a person is trapped under rubble after a huge explosion at a gym in South Wales last night sparked a massive inferno.

The large multi-storey building housing Mindset Gym at Treforest Industrial Estate in Pontypridd is on the brink of collapse after an enormous blast which saw police declare a 'major incident' and firefighters scramble to the scene of the chaos.

Three people were treated at the scene before they were discharged, a Welsh Ambulance Service spokesperson said. Local NHS emergency departments were on 'high alert' after the blaze, with people asked not to attend A&E unless 'absolutely necessary'. Though there are no reports of any serious injuries, one person remains unaccounted for, South Wales Police said.

Deputy chief fire officer Dewi Rose said: 'At 7.05pm this evening South Wales Fire and Rescue Service (SWFRS) responded to repeat calls about an explosion at Mindset Gym, Rizla House, Severn Road on Treforest Industrial Estate, Pontypridd.

'SWFRS currently has 16 pumping appliances, a number of special appliances and officers in attendance. The latest from the scene is that the building, a large multi-use two-storey commercial premises, is totally alight and at risk of collapse.'

Police, fire and ambulance services in attendance at a major incident after an 'explosion' on an industrial estate on Wednesday

Jonny Foxhall, 36, the owner of nearby music venue Green Rooms, said: 'Our front door was flung open so we went out to see what had happened. We could see a smoke cloud and an orange glow from above the treeline quickly followed by flames.' He added: 'To feel the shockwave from the explosion is something I've never experienced before.'

Local resident Allyson Richards told MailOnline that she and her friend had been sat on the sofa at home when they heard an 'almighty bang' which 'shook the house'. 'It's absolutely crazy,' she said. 'The windows shook and we ran outside.'

The 56-year-old lives a short walk from the estate, which is across a river and main road from her house. She said her initial thoughts were that a lorry on the road might have hit one of the residents' cars parked outside.

'The whole house shook, my friend and I just looked at each other like 'my god what was that'... I was just shocked by the force of the explosion, for it to shake the house it was quite a big explosion. When I went out that was unbelievable, we didn't know where the fire was coming from. At first we couldn't see anything so came back in. Then my neighbour said 'you went back too soon, look over there,' and we could see the fire rising high.' Our concern was if everyone is alright, especially coming up to Christmas I just hope everyone is okay.'

She said that she has 'never seen anything like it. You hear about stuff like this but we have never have anything like that around here.'

'The smoke is unbelievable,' she went on to say, as residents were warned to keep their windows closed. She added at around midnight that the fire is 'still going now, you can still see the orange haze'.

Chicago area home destroyed, 10 other buildings damaged in apparent natural gas explosion

CHICAGO (CBS) -- A home in northwest suburban Woodstock was destroyed in an apparent natural gas explosion Monday afternoon.

Woodstock Police said, around 12:30 p.m., a city employee reported a natural gas leak near Lincoln Avenue and Tryon Street. Nicor Gas crews were called to the scene, and nearby streets were shut down as a precaution.

Woodstock Fire/Rescue District Chief Brendan Parker said, as a Nicor team was assessing the damage, firefighters evacuated St. Mary Catholic Church, 312 Lincoln Ave., and urged nearby homeowners to shelter in place. The school at the church was closed on Monday for the Columbus Day holiday.

Around 2:40 p.m., a two-story home across the street from the church exploded, and was completely leveled. 

"I heard this big boom, and it woke me up, and I was scared. I thought a car hit my house. Like, it was scary," said neighbor Abigail Scott.

A total of 10 buildings were damaged in the blast, including the church and school. At least one other home also caught fire.

The explosion left a massive debris field around the home, with some pieces of debris on top of a Nicor Gas truck parked outside the home.

Rebecca Bosowski said the explosion destroyed her brother Ben's home – one that he and his wife had moved into less than a year and half ago.

"Their whole life was in that house, and they have to rebuild, and we're here to help them, and hopefully people can help them as well," she said.

Luckily no one was home at that time, but everything they owned ended up buried under rubble. The family has set up a GoFundMe page to help rebuild.

Bosowski said her brother and sister-in-law's two dogs were burned. Both were taken to the vet for treatment. They're still searching for the family's cat.

At least 11 people were left homeless as a result of the explosion.

Parker said fire department officials do not have any safety concerns for the neighborhood at this time. 

The cause of the explosion is under investigation. The gas leak was contained by about 3:30 p.m., after Nicor shut off gas to the area.

Parker said the Red Cross was providing assistance to any residents left homeless as a result of damage from the explosion.

Romania explosion: Huge blasts at fuel station kill two and injure dozens

At least two people died and 56 were injured after two blasts at a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) station in Romania.

The injured included 39 firefighters who went to the scene following the first explosion near the capital Bucharest on Saturday evening.

Shortly after, a second blast sent a mushroom cloud billowing into the sky, rocking the forecourt in Crevedia.

Several people are in critical condition with severe burns, authorities said.


The two people who died were a couple, Raed Arafat, the head of Romania's emergency department, told reporters on Sunday.

They sent four people who were injured, including two firefighters, to hospitals abroad and said others would follow.

Two police officers and two gendarmes are among the injured.

Authorities do not yet know what caused the blast. Mr Arafat said the station was no longer in use and "did not have a permit to function", according to quotes reported by the Agence France-Presse news agency.

People within a 700-metre (almost half a mile) radius were initially evacuated from the area, with Mr Arafat warning there was a risk of another explosion.

But by mid-morning, the fires had been contained.

Romania's President Klaus Iohannis described the explosions as a "tragedy" and said he was "profoundly saddened" by what had happened.

"An investigation must quickly be launched to see if rules were broken. I ask the authorities to take urgent measures for the injured so that these tragedies won't happen again," he wrote on Facebook.

NEWARK, N.J. -- Part of a two-story apartment building in Newark was reduced to rubble after an explosion left several people injured Friday evening.

The building, managed by the Newark Housing Authority, was all but destroyed about 6 p.m. Friday after an explosion rocked the building. The cause of the blast is under investigation.

The walls of the building were blown off, leaving a refrigerator and furniture on full display.

Valery Lasky and her son work at a nearby deli.

"He said 'Ma, a building exploded.' I ran and looked and saw a guy climbing down the rubble. The owner of the store said there were people all over the ground," Lasky said.

Newark officials said six people were hurt. Five were taken to area hospitals. One woman suffered from serious burns.

Several people were injured and homes are destroyed after an explosion in Newark. Anthony Carlo has the details.

"I actually know the man who is in there. His name is Mario, and I just hope he is going to be OK," Lasky added.

The Red Cross is assisting at least 31 displaced families, including 28 adults and three children, as investigators try to pin down what happened.

"No, we don't have any information about where the explosion started, what unit it started from; this is an ongoing investigation," Newark Public Safety Director Fritz Frage said.
