The most obvious risk of that proposed natural gas pipeline was seen in another one Monday through today in Oklahoma (and Texas and Kansas): explosion and fire. The pipeline proposed for here would be 44% bigger; maybe we could have an explosion seen from Florida and Alabama!
CBS News reported today, Okla. pipeline blast sparks huge blaze, spurs evacuations,
Deputy Cliff Brinson, of the Harper County Sheriff’s Department, says the fire sounded like four roaring jet engines and had flames reaching two football fields high.
He says no injuries were reported, and residents within two miles of the blast were evacuated.
A family of three living in a home about 200 yards away escaped unharmed, authorities say.
By the time the pipeline company, Northern Natural Gas, released a statement they called it “a flicker”.
