    I live less than 2 hours away if it was anything big I would have felt it like I did the Earthquake this morning.

    Well apparently it destroyed a neighborhood so it seems pretty damn big to me.

    If it's the story that's on Fox, ABC News, etc - looks like 2 houses destroyed from an explosion and others (number unclear, some say 4) on fire.

    No word on source of explosion. My first thought is a gas main.

    People are saying there was an earthquake right before they heard the blast, so you're most likely right.

    2 homes and damage to a dozen more is hardly a destroyed neighborhood, and yes it is big. But on the grand scale, which is what I was referring to, it is small. Hence why I said if it was anything big I would have felt it. It would have to be pretty damn big for me to feel it. Which is why I also mentioned the earthquake as well. Sorry for the confusion.


    Just to clarify, the quake I am referring to happened yesterday, I guess I still thought i was Saturday.

    Wasn't that big of an earthquake (I was pretty close to the epicenter but all it did was rumble a bit for 15 seconds or so), but could have been enough to cause some problems with a gas line. Sounds likely to me.

    If it was a meteor, there would be a LOT more destruction than just 2 houses...
    Deathknight's do it using disease, blood and the power of the unholy. Warlocks do it with dark demons by their side. Mages do it with summoned arcane powers. Druids do it using the forces of nature. Rogues do it through stealth, poison's, shadows and....from behind. Paladins do it by calling to the light for aid. Shamans do it with the help of the elements. Priests do it through the holy light.
    But warriors....
    Warriors just fucking do it.

    Not necessarily. Some rocks that reach the Earth burn so badly there's almost nothing left.

    i like how some of the people are speculating that it might have been a missile attack and that it could be the start of a new war.

    Sounds like a gas main explosion. Gas mains is leaking, sleepy guy goes downstairs for something to eat/drink, doesn't notice the smell of gas, turns the light on, BOOM. Damage done is about right for that kind of accident.

    could also be a vacant house completely filled with gas it sure would cause a explosion with enough force to do this kind of damage, could also be the gas line rupturing and somehow igniting i'd imagine that would be one hell of a blast aswell.

    an earthquake exposed a gas main, then a meteor the size of a baseball post-entry, struck said gas main.
    This information is entirely based off of my assumptions.

    Doesn't need a meteor, somebody turning a light on within 100 yards would set it off.

    It happened at 11pm last night and we still don't know what caused it? I find that strange.

    Plane crash, natural gas, drone strike, spontaneous combustion, haarp?
