Looks like one unit gone and the remains of three units side-by-side to me.
For your consideration-

Wow, that pic shows what looks to be like a hole in the gound.

The construction done in the area on the gas lines,
a previous post in this thread said there had been calls out during the day of gas leaks,
not to be found upon arrival.

Excellent research BurntheShips!! It looks like they fell behind on safety standards. I was following the New Madrid Fault, and there were "over 500 quakes", all minor, along that fault line in the past 4-5months. Seeing as it runs along Western PA, is it possible tremors may have weakened old pipes in Allentown?

We even have a natural gas pipeline running through a village named "Benton" in Columbia County, PA. It's underground, and runs through fields, over mountains, and they fly a chopper from end to end everyday to inspect the unseen pipeline, along with locals that check meters on atvs/snowmobiles daily. That however is not a 12" pipeline, it supplies natural gas to towns and cities all through north-south eastern PA. I'd hate to hear of this malfunctioning.
