About 20 miles from me we had some houses explode mysteriously. We could feel the blast here. They still don't know what happened and have ruled out a gas leak. It's pretty disconcerting. 2 people died in the initial blast and 81 homes were damaged
There have been a lot of rumors and still nothing is confirmed but the think it was caused by faulty appliances. There are no gas leaks but gas was involved in conjunction with the faulty furnace. In one house the furnace had been worked on previously. The homeowners knew about it and weren't home at the time....hmmmm. They were also trying to sell the home. The couple that died lived next to them.
There are a lot of missing pets roaming the neighborhood so some notporprofits are setting up traps to catch the frightened animals.
