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

Rescue operation after German mine explosion
Updated 20:22, 08-Nov-2019
More than 30 people have been rescued following an explosion in a mine in eastern Germany.

The staff were trapped 700 meters (2,300 feet) below ground following an unexplained blast, police said, adding "all personnel have been rescued."

The mining authority said one of the staff was seriously injured, according to the Mitteldeutsche Zeitung news website.

Before the rescue, those trapped were supplied with oxygen and took refuge in a safe section of the mine in Teutschenthal, about 150 kilometers southwest of Berlin, near the city of Halle.

The mine was closed in 1982 but is being used to deposit mining waste from elsewhere, the website said. Around 100 people are employed at the site.

Gas line explosion, fire sends one to hospital

Posted Nov 7, 2019 1:10 pm MST

CALGARY (660 NEWS) – One person is in hospital after a natural gas line explosion sparked a fire at a construction site in the city’s northwest.

Both fire and ATCO crews were on the scene for hours in Sage Hill–a community with a number of homes under development.

A propane tank that was in the area of the fire was singed, but it appears fire crews were able to push the fire back before the tank exploded.

The person rushed to hospital is in serious but stable condition

No injuries reported during explosion at Plaquemine chemical plant

PLAQUEMINE, La. (WAFB) - There was a reported explosion at the Dow Chemical plant in Plaquemine Sunday morning, according to the Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office. No injuries were reported, according to Dow Louisiana Operations.

The Iberville Parish Council says there is no immediate danger to the public.

WAFB received several calls from residents this morning about hearing a loud explosion just after 8 a.m. The explosion was heard and shook homes across the river in East Baton Rouge Parish.

About 10 miles away from the plant Thomas Argust was getting his day started, but the loud noise we now know was an explosion caught him off guard, “ It sounded like someone dropped a bowling ball in our house. When I went outside on the front porch, I looked around. I didn’t see anything in the sky.”

Posts on our WAFB Facebook page say the incident was felt as far away as Gonzales, Zachary, and Central.

Trudy Jackson lives about five miles away from the plant. She’s used to the occasional noises coming from the site, but this morning’s boom still caused her to pause, “It was like a crash. We thought it might have been something that hit the house. Or something going on with the dogs outside.”

According to Dow Louisiana Operations, a vessel ruptured at the site Sunday morning. The company stated there are no injuries and that officials are conducting air monitoring. Dow added the initial assessment does not appear to be an offsite impact other than the noise. The company also stated the production unit is stable.

Officials said leadership and the company’s response team is on-site walking through the unit. Dow added it is in direct contact with regulatory agencies and local community officials. Officials also said people will see steam from the unit as the company keeps the steam headers warm during the shutdown. The rest of the site continues to run safely with normal flaring, according to Dow.

The West Baton Rouge Parish Office of Homeland Security said it’s aware of the vessel rupture and that it’s in contact with Dow Chemical.

Row Home Explosion Sparks Fire That Spreads to 9 Other Homes

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say an early morning house explosion in the eastern Pennsylvania city of Allentown blew off the front of the row home and led to a fire that spread to nine other homes, but no serious injuries were immediately reported.

Allentown fire officials said the blast was reported at 3 a.m. Sunday. One person initially unaccounted for was later found safe. One person was taken to a hospital for a minor injury and a firefighter was treated for a shoulder injury. Officials said more than two dozen people were displaced by the blaze.

Capt. John Christopher said crews were putting out hot spots but there was no longer an active fire. The cause of the blaze is under investigation. Christopher said arriving crews didn't detect any odor of natural gas.

Nustar Energy

Explosion at NuStar energy facility in Northern California caught on camera

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 12:43PM

CROCKETT, Calif. -- As a fire raged at NuStar energy facility in Crockett, California, on Tuesday afternoon, an explosion that sent the top of a tank flying was caught on camera.

A witness shared a clip that shows a massive fireball created by the explosive chemicals. The roof of that container was sent flying in the air and floating back to the earth.

The fire prompted a hazardous materials emergency that led authorities to order about 12,000 people in two communities to stay inside with all windows and doors closed.
Emergency sirens blared and thick plumes of black smoke and flames filled the skyline around the facility in Contra Costa County.
"This is a very dynamic, rapidly evolving situation,'' Capt. George Laing of the Contra Costa Fire Department said. He said authorities received numerous reports of explosions before the fire and that the flaming tanks "are releasing chemicals that are still burning."

Gas explosion kills 9, injures 10 in east China

BEIJING (AP) — Nine people were killed Sunday in a restaurant gas explosion in eastern China, reported state broadcaster CCTV.

The explosion gutted the restaurant and damaged neighboring shops in coastal Jiangsu province's Wuxi city.

CCTV reported that 10 others who were injured are in stable condition. Over 200 rescue workers have been dispatched to the scene.

An overpass collapsed last week in the same city, killing three people inside a car.

Jiangsu was the site of a massive chemical blast in March, when nearly 80 people died in one of China's worst industrial accidents in recent years.

Two killed in Dubai gas explosion

Two people were also seriously injured in the explosion in Dubai's Al Mankhool and have been hospitalised
Sun 29 Sep 2019 02:13 PM

Two people were killed and another two injured following an explosion inside a building in Dubai’s Al Mankhool area, according to local media reports.

Sources quoted by Gulf News said the deadly incident was caused by a cooking gas explosion.

The two deaths were confirmed on Sunday.

The newspaper added that one of the dead was a gas technician, while the other was a resident who was playing near the flat with his daughter when the explosion took place.

The two injured were a female resident and a second gas technician, both of whom were admitted to Rashid Hospital with severe burns. It remains unclear what their condition is.

“There was some problem in the gas pipeline as it wouldn’t work. So my sister had lodged a complaint,” the injured female’s brother was quoted as saying by the newspaper.

“The two technicians came in the evening and as soon as they began checking the pipeline, the explosion occurred,” he added. “One technician and a resident who was playing with his daughter in the corridor died instantly. My sister and the other technician received 70 percent burns and are on the ventilator at Rashid Hospital.”

Dubai Police and other authorities have cordoned the building off and are investigating.
