I seen that on the news a little bit ago, that's terrible. BE SAFE...
Wow! Hope no one gets hurt with this, Good to hear you evacuated, Stay safe.
Our infrastructure, particularly in the Northeast, in not in good shape. The electrical grid, water and gas lines, roads, rail, and bridges are all a problem. This is pretty common knowledge- what isn't common is the will to tackle the issue.
Tell me about it. Not only is my town on fire, but they had to close a key bridge 1/3 mile from my house due to condition, adding significant distance to drive around it. It’s been closed almost two months with no fix in sight.
stay safe, brother
I rather be facing Florence. Florence I have prepared for. The suddenness of your situation would more unsettling. Be safe.
One death so far from an explosive shock wave. At least 13 injured ages teens to 60s. A couple in surgery and one flown to Boston for treatment.
My daughter has a friend with a next door neighbor’s house on fire. Due to multiple fires nearby, they were unable to evacuate but are OK. Fires are out now I think.
Our fire department typically deals with one fire per year, not 40 in one day.
Gas company hasn’t said anything yet, which the local news is questioning.
I'm just a couple towns south of you...crazy stuff. Glad you're safe. It is a miracle more people were not seriously injured (at least what's been reported so far). Last I saw was over 70 houses with fires/explosions. Unreal.
You can imagine that at this moment, their lawyers are calling the shots in terms of any public statements. I'd bet their operations people have been told to say nothing.
Not to mention FERC, PHMSHA, and DOT are probably steering the ship right now. The requests for maintenance and compliance records for the life of the pipeline have only just begun. A very unfortunate situation for everyone.
Any speculation the leaking gas came into the houses through the sewer system? With that many homes affected that would be my assumption.
I’m glad you’re all safe. Prayers to others in the town. Take care Kevin.
"Andover Fire-Rescue is a 70-member department. Every firefighter was called back to work today, and the fires broke out around shift change, meaning more firefighters were around anyway. #MVGasFire"
It's amazing what these guys sign up for. Hats off to them.
Hey y'all be careful up there.
Glad to hear you are safe. Scary stuff.
We've really let our infrastructure go here. That's all I can say without getting political.
Not every part of town has septic hook up, like me. Then again, I never smelled gas in our neighborhood. I’ll withhold speculation on the cause for now.
I’m hearing now that the one death was from blunt trauma, not from a shock wave, but a falling chimney at a house that exploded. He was 18 years-old and in a car at the time.
Yikes! Stay safe!
So far all I have heard is a line was over pressured and that there wasn't a mainline rupture which is what my first thought was. In that case gas wouldn't migrate up through the sewer system.
An over pressure causing that much damage is very puzzling to me unless they are using a very antiquated system. Most systems have 3 methods of redundant over pressure protection.
