Mentions that "some people saw fireworks & strange colorful flames". . . Worth a watch.
Edit: Also mentions that possibly 1 out of the 2 demolished houses could have been a vacant house. If correct, this leaves both of the homes that were destroyed at time of event were completely empty at the time.edit on 12-11-2012 by JWash because: (no reason given)

I dont believe a gas explosion is a possible cause for this, at all. Why? Because two houses suffered equal, total damage. These 2 houses were not structurally connected. If a gas explosion was the cause, I would expect one house to be destroyed and the surrounding ones suffering at least somewhat equal damage. This is not the case here.
No gas can explode between 2 houses like that, in open air. Even if that was possible, the debris and damage would most likely have been different than what we have here.

Maybe so, that is why I was looking to find other HQ photos of US residential suburban explosions. I came up empty though.
actually no, the topic changed throughout the night as members were giving different ideas, which is how it should be, this is a community discussion I'm not going to inflict my opinion, I will share others opinion so I'm not the focus of the discussion. The very first reports coming in was a possible plane crash anyway, so it's not even too far fetched, It doesn't seem you've brought anything to the table and are just finding something to attack, I find that very rude..

Easy to say when you're hundreds of miles away, try being a few miles away and counting your blessings(im not religious) that it wasn't you or your family.

Well who would have thought that would happen on ATS an OVER EXAGGERATED thread title
I'm not even sure what you arre talking about anyway? is this not mass devastation to you, does 3?4?5?6? houses have to be obliterated to be considered mass destruction? does a nuke have to go off? Speculation =/= exaggeration. Either way the cause hasn't even been found and your occams razor theory HAS been ruled out it was not a natural gas explosion according to press conference with impd and gas company.edit on 11-11-2012 by Maskander because: (no reason given)
Property is not the important factor its life, this happened in Scotland a few years ago all the family killed in their sleep.
Or this in Lockerbie in Scotland when the 747 was blown out of the sky 259 killed on the flight 11 on the ground and not as important many houses destroyed .
No it's the simple fact on here when people try to make a thread attract attention with stuff like this in the title
"Giant sonic boom felt and heard in Indianapolis Indiana(meteor? mass devastation Info blocade"
Sonic boom or is it an explosion HOW do they know ?
Meteor WHY is that the first thought ?
Info blockade What makes them think that?
Anytime anything happens some members on here scream media blackout when its obvious they are talking BS!

I have to say I'm finding it weird we have people showing up on a Monday morning to post links to MSM stories 'explaining' what happened when the explosion took place Saturday night and this thread is 55 pages deep. Almost like here's your explanation, not stop discussing it.
I would like to ask that anyone that continues to follow this to be on the look out for surveillance camera footage. With the houses and businesses in the area I would think that someone might have caught it. Could help solve the mystry of the shaking people reported feeling before the explosion.
