The two people on the left looked like they just shat their pants, while the woman on the right didn't flinch, and was just smiling, nodding her head, and was cool as a cucumber.

The fire department believes the cause was probably a natural gas leak inside a home.

Hmm...where have we seen this before?

files.abovetopsecret.com

Oh, right.  Indiana.

Looks like it's time for some stricter regulations regarding natural gas.

Cue up Jonathan Coulton's "The Big Boom".

Also, you would think that instead of laughing about it, how about going right to investigate it instead of going to weather.  I hate local news.

Ah, KIII TV in Corpus Christi. Back in the analog days when they actually were on channel 3, in June and July, the position of the sun would cause TV skip in the evening, and they would put a pretty good signal into the Cincinnati area for a few hours most nights. No shiat. Also picked up CBHT Halifax a few times as well in the summer in Cincy on channel 3.

Agreed. Ditch the 'broadcast consultants' pitching new colors, fonts, logos, etc. and spend the 300K on fixing THIS issue...

In Indiana it was intentionally filled with gas and ignited by a timer.

Me too. That was a difficult story to parse without realizing the stupid bit was call letters.

Unless it WAS a meth lab, I'm figuring the explosion occurred because something broke because it wore out because someone couldn't repair it because there wasn't any money to do so because taxes are too low.

OR: ... couldn't repair it because there was no one demanding it be repaired because no stringent regulations governed whatever it was that blew up.

OR, again, could have been a meth lab.

Their job is to sit in front of the camera and read the news off the teleprompter. They are not first responders. Sending someone to find out is the best they can do. Also they might as well stick to their regular schedule until they have some information to pass on.

/Also confused by the call letters

So your time machine is working again?  Good to know someone was able to get an advanced copy of the investigation.

What was the actual cause, and what new regulations will prevent similar occurrences in the future?

Then again, you have a working time machine and should be able to tell us is if the proposed regulatiosn are enacted and what effect they had.

When Martin Luther nailed his protest up to the church door in 1517, he may not have realised the full significance of what he was doing, but four hundred years later, thanks to him, my dear, I can wear whatever I want on my John Thomas. And Protestantism doesn't stop at the simple condom. Oh, no! I can wear French Tickers if I want.

OMG THIS!

Seriously though.... I've always wondered why natural gas has zero safety mechanisms associated with typical installs. If a house has gas, it should require detectors just like smoke and carbon monoxide.

I'm Texan born and bred.  There's plenty of reasons to mock Texas and that disaster in West is one of them.  Not the disaster itself, but the level of incompetent oversight that led to it and the governor who declared that the oversight "was just fine".

Too bad the State of TX couldn't be bothered to enforce their two page brochure.

It's been mentally grandfathered in - we've used it for over a century.

My dad (an EE) jokes that if we didn't have home electricity and tried to introduce it today, we'd never get it past the lawyers and the bureauocrats.
