[quote:Anonymous Coward 27227251:MV8yMDQ3Mjk4XzM0NDcyNTg4X0U0MzdDNUZF] [quote:Anonymous Coward 27227251:MV8yMDQ3Mjk4XzM0NDcxNjY5XzFENDBDOTUx] [quote:Anonymous Coward 13998309:MV8yMDQ3Mjk4XzM0NDY2Mzc2XzMyOTgzNjYz] I'm still curious how they know which house blew up first? [/quote] Yeah, it looks like the center of the blast is between the two houses that were totally obliterated. I could see one house disappearing with only a scorch mark from an internal gas leak, but not two. Being that nobody officially wants to blame gas, neither the ntsb nor the gas company, there must be some behind the scenes arm twisting to decide who is going to lie about it and blame the gas or come up with a pure alternative fairy tale. Gas companies have to have good lawyers just because of the nature of the beast. They would tend to hang onto the "our investigation is not complete" approach as long as possible rather than "it wasn't us" this early in the game if they weren't sure. If the gas company was able to recover an intact meter or two, they could easily determine whether or not enough gas went through it to cause this much destruction. They have a record from the last monthly reading for every house in the neighborhood. A meter involved in a house with a major appliance leak would show an unusually high reading since the last reading compared to the others. This ain't rocket science. So either no intact meters were recovered to prove it wasn't gas related, which I doubt, or there is some serious effort being made to spin a plausible not gas related story or some serious effort to get somebody to lie that it was gas related going on behind the scenes. [/quote] They found a meter that was in good enough condition to test so you can bet they got a reading from it. To fill a house that size with enough gas to blow it up along with the one next door would take 10k+ cubic feet or so which would certainly register on the meter as being higher than the surrounding homes for the same time period. [b]Citizens says it conducted the following tests in cooperation with the National Transportation Safety Board and the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission: · Leak detection survey of the entire Richmond Hill subdivision. · Pressure tests of the 2-inch diameter gas main and all underground service lines on Fieldfare Way. [i]· Functional test of the gas meter at the home where the explosion is believed to have originated.[/i][/b] http://www.wthr.com/story/20088184/citizens-energy-no-evidence-of-gas-leaks-at-explosion-site [/quote]
Maybe 20-30 minutes ago? Felt like a car crashed HARD into the house... went outside and all the neighbors were coming out reporting the same. It was LOUD and gave the house a JOLT.
Then family members started calling to ask if it happened here too (they are also in S or SE Indianapolis).
Anyone else? I looked but didn't see a thread and nothing on the local news yet...
