In our area, about 7-8 years ago, a cable company hired a local contractor to install underground cabling. Unfortunately, the co. subbed the contract to a TX company that had illegals who didn´t speak english. They hit a neighborhood gas line, which caused a leak into the nearest house. That house blew up and damaged the house next door. A few windows in the neighborhood were broken. But - nothing like the damage in this article. The workers here knew what they did before the explosion, abandoned the backhoe, jumped in their dump truck and took off. They didn´t try to warn anyone - but no one around would have understood them anyway. The explosion in this article sounds much, much bigger than the 1500 sq ft basement full of gas explosion near here & is more suspicious.

If it was escaping gas the magnitude of the explosion would indicate a massive rupture of a primary feed line. As the comment above bears out, most such ruptures happen when workers hit a line in daytime working hours unlike here. I suspect something more at issue.

I live about a mile from where the explosion happened. Around 11 PM we heard the loudest blast. The windows rattled and the ground shook. It was massive. Luckily there is a fire station practically across the street from the explosion. It is certainly tragic for the families and friends of the two victims but it could have been so much worse. It is a nice neighborhood loaded with kids. The weather was beautiful yesterday and if the explosion had happened during the day there would have been kids out playing. Scary stuff.

Do these gas lines degrade over time? Seems like I´m hearing more and more stories about natural gas leaks - especially in older neighborhoods.

Maybe #3 can help us out. From the pictures shown on tv (preblast) it looks like a really nice, new suburban neighborhood. Also, #3, happy to hear you´re safe.

We had something like that happen in North Georgia a few years ago. A house exploded and actuall totalled four more nearby and damaged dozens more.

The suspician is that a slow leak was deliberately started to cause a fire but the house was preyy airtight and turned into a massive bomb instead.

Richmond Hill explosion a year later:
A time for healing

It’s been a year since Glenn Olvey stood up in the middle of his family room, settled for a moment on the idea of going to bed, and then, without a hint of a warning, found himself being blasted across the room. Today, his most tangible reminders of the explosion that ripped apart the Richmond Hill neighborhood that night are the vacant lot where his house once stood and the pieces of wood and glass that penetrated deep into his skin during the blast and are just now pushing their way to the surface — a year later.

U.S. Senatorial candidate Richard Mourdock is catching heat for comments he made during Tuesday's debate. When asked about abortion, the Republican said he opposes abortion in cases of rape and incest because "even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, it is something that God intended."

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
