    Texas pipeline blast kills 3: reports - Yahoo! News

    Just read the news. Looks like there are some casualties.

    I can't believe that we have two oil leaks and now this going on at practically the same time.

    I wonder if somebody forgot to call the gas company before digging?

    Workers apparently hit the underground line about 50 miles south of Dallas while digging on Monday, said Cleburne City Manager Chester Nolen. The heat was "unbearable," even 300 yards from the flames, he said. A column of gray smoke was visible miles away.

    Thankfully not sabotage. But unfortunately it appears there were casualties.

    This.

    The Associated Press: Officials investigate deadly Texas gas explosion

    Wondering if the utility had marked the area and the diggers checked the area. Also i depends on how old the gas line is. Newer ones add materials making them easier to detect with metal detectors.

    Actually only one person died. And it isn't a leak, the pipeline was shut off and most if not all the gas burned off.

    Fearing more bad press, 0bama has decided to act quickly on the gas leak. He has ordered in air strike of Beano immediately.
