Good lord.

Deputy Code Enforcement Director Adam Collins said as many as 31 homes were damaged so badly that they may have to be demolished. The explosion damaged a total of 80 homes, he said.

I was just about to post that exact line from the article.  That was one powerful explosion and its a miracle there was only 2 fatalities.

probably gas related.  Happened here in Sacramento (Rancho Cordova) about 5 years ago.  And happened in San Bruno CA a few years back

I was guessing that it was Hark's reaction to seeing people already playing BlOps2 online:D

I am within 2 miles of ground zero.  It occurred while we were watching a movie.  We thought something had fallen upstairs.  Gave up on it being on the inside and went outside.  Many of the neighbors came out trying to figure out what was going on.

Faulty furnace?

Quote
he owner of a house that exploded in Indianapolis, killing two people and damaging dozens of homes so severely officials say they must be demolished, said Monday that a problem furnace could be at fault.

John Shirley, 50, of Noblesville, told The Associated Press that his daughter sent him a text message last week complaining that the furnace in the home where she lives with her mother and her mother's boyfriend had gone out and required them to stay at hotel.

But Shirley also said when he asked if the furnace had been fixed, his daughter said yes, and he wasn't aware of any additional problems until he heard from his daughter again Sunday morning.

"I get a text from my daughter saying `Dad, our home is gone.' Then I called my ex-wife and she said what happened," he said.

A source in touch with the couple told CBS Indianapolis affiliate WISH-TV that a member of the family had smelled gas in the house.
...
Citizens Energy tested for gas leaks in the neighborhood but hasn't found any. She said crews were also testing lines that run from the gas main to the home and were testing the home's gas meter. She said the utility had no record of abnormal gas consumption in the home that exploded.

Probably a gas line. San Bruno in the Bay Area had a gas line blow a couple years ago that killed 6 people and took out most of a block. Turned out a bad weld on an aging pipe line finally gave way. PG&E paid out a lot of money over that and it looks like it is just the tip of what could be a very expensive iceberg.
