    Wirral gas explosion destroys building.

    Wirral 'gas explosion' flattens dance studio, injuring 34 people

    Witnesses say the blast caused "horrific damage" and flattened several buildings, scattering debris across the road.

    See the full report and a drone picture from above of this massive explosion from Sky News HERE




    I have always found it interesting how a small gas leak that fills a building can totally destroy that building with only a comparatively small explosion.

    Unlike a bomb, which may be outside a building, a gas-leak turns the whole building into a bomb by throwing the explosive force outwards and easily knocking down walls.

    Here's what to do to prevent this:

    If you smell gas, think you have a gas leak, or are worried that fumes containing carbon monoxide are escaping from a gas appliance, please call the free Gas Emergency Services help-line immediately on 0800111999. Also: Open all doors and windows to ventilate the property.

    Thanks from me too Papa, as I have always been frightened about leaking gas.
