The quickening of the earth by the added energy in the world can cause a lot of problems with gas lines and underground electrical lines. It can cause the earth to settle in spots or to rise in others. I have seen this settling in my own yard over the last twenty years. I have seen evidence of hills disappearing and streets collapsing into mineshafts. Electrolytes conduct energy, salts weaken the covalent bonds while also acting as an electrolyte itself. Energy comes from many sources in the world. This can cause a pulling on gas lines underground.
