I told you God hates liberals

Officials in Massachusetts say there are up to 70 fires burning in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover after problems with the natural gas system.

Multiple people have been hurt, including one firefighter in Andover. Town officials said two civilians in Andover were also injured.

In Lawrence, at least four people were said to be undergoing treatment at Lawrence General Hospital, according to WHDH. A woman trapped in her house during the explosion suffered leg injuries, and a man in a car nearby was seriously injured by a falling chimney.

    Maybe Quantrill has come back from the dead?

    “Columbia Gas said in a news release that it was upgrading natural gas lines in neighborhood across the state.

    The company said the improvements would lead to long-term benefits including enhanced safety features and reliable service.”

    I’m not sure that the current residents are appreciating the new “enhanced safety features” just yet.

    I’m calling BS on this. I read the statement of what happened and that would require dozens of simultaneous failures. So many that it suspends belief.

      Ok i can think of a couple ways it could happen, but none are just accidents.

      if they were doing work and had multiple lines they could have cross connected the high pressure regional feed line to the low pressure distribution line, effectively cutting the pressure cut station out of the loop. Then the HP gas would likely destroy older diaphram type regulators and fill peoples homes with gas… then all it would take is a spark.
      if you got something like NGLs into the line and all the way to the customers homes it would puke out the furnace pilot valve and then flash to a gas and create an explosive mix. This requires way too many systems to fail and most of those were mechanical wete i used to work. It would be very very unlikely without someone helping it.

    Nothing would surprise me about Columbia gas. I think Exile has it right.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
