natural gas explodes in Johnson County


OHNSON COUNTY - A natural gas facility has exploded in Johnson County, according to reports.

Massive flames and a huge plume of smoke can be seen in the area.

The Cleburne fire chief says six people have been injured.

“About 2:40 p.m., we heard a loud explosion, rumbling, almost like a tornado. It shook our entire house. The plume of smoke that came out or steam is heading this way, the wind is blowing it right over our house. We are trying to work out whether it is something we need to evacuate or not," said Laura Harlin in Johnson County.

“We don’t really smell anything at this point. It sounds like faraway thunder at this point,” she added.

At 3:15 p.m., she said she could still hear the rumbling.

Witness Tracey Mann said there is a large gas facility in the area.(visit the link for the full news article)

First of all, I live here in Dallas and what has happened is NOT an oil well exploding. This is a natural gas facility. A pipe was hit causing it to explode.

Upon watching it live it appears there was a construction crew on the site, I speculate perhaps they were digging and hit the line.

The last link I have attached in my additional news links contains live footage.

It appears to be a 36 inch gas line that was ruptured. Several have been injured, and some are still missing.

ETA: Wfaa corrected their article title so I am updating mine in order to remain in good terms with the T&C.

Title is misleading, this is a natural gas line, not an oil well.

First of all, I am required by the T&C to have the same title as the article. If you have a problem take it up with wfaa channel 8. Not me.


Second, Assuming you actually read what I wrote you will see that I immediately pointed out that it is a natural gas well and not an oil well.That said do you have an opinion on the issue or no?

Yes, I heard that too. 10 are still unaccounted for, many more are in the hospital with burn injuries/ I am watching ABC local channel 8 right now. If you look around at the charred ground, it looks that the initial explosion was huge.

Then again there is a grass fire burning around the edge, so it may cause it to look like a bigger explosion then it was.

Just, wow.

You will be glad to know that they corrected their article title, so I am now permitted to correct the title of my thread as well
.

That said I would still love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this explosion

I must say, there are lots of gas explosions lately. I wonder if this is normal or just hyped about things that have been kept quiet before.

Good question. I am not sure. This particular explosion appears to be a horrible accident caused perhaps by construction crews accidentally hitting the line. I keep saying construction crew because there are construction vehicles along the edge of the explosion.

So, perhaps they were the ones who were digging and hit it?

Looks like I beat you to it

There has got to be more going on here than meets the eye. There have just been way to many "accidents" in the past few months. Something is not right.
