    Explosion destroys homes in Ind., 2 dead



    This explosion rocked my friends home last night, she posted about it on FB, she lives about a half mile away. She thought at first there must have been a earthquake or a plane crash. 2 have been found dead. 2 homes completly leveled by the blast, 27 home declared uninhabitable. Some have thought meth house though. The explosion was big felt miles away. No known cause as of yet:

    Doors on the backs of homes on the next street over were blown off the explosion was so powerful. DHS and ATF have responsed to the explosion. No evidence of gas leaks have been found yet.

    Highly doubt a meth lab did that much damage.

    But holy shit though.

    That is what I was thinking but a lot in the area are speculating about such. It is insane. I can't imagine.

    It could be gas.

    I knew an older married couple whose house blew up. What investigators figure is they had a gas leak from their furnace, it was on one side of the basement, the garage was on the other. The wife was upstairs, the husband went into the garage and started his truck, and the whole place blew to kingdom come.

    I drove past the next day, there was nothing but a huge pile of toothpick - size splinters.
