    Multiple gas explosions in Boston, over sixty homes on fire.

    Sixty to one hundred homes burst into flames due to what might be over pressurized gas valves in Boston.

    Dozens of fires & explosions in homes reported in Lawrence, N. Andover and Andover.

    Never knew gas lines could cause explosions like this- unless maybe it was some type of chain reaction but looking at the map it's homes all over the neighborhood.

    That's a new one for me as well. God that would absolutely suck.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Reminds me of the explosion in California a few years ago: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Br...line_explosion

    This is the kind of thing the IoT and hacking could do..
    I just did two lines of powdered wig powder, cranked up some Lee Greenwood, and recited the BoR. - Outlander Systems

    Had one in Colorado a year or two ago, killed the homeowners and damn near vaporizer the house. Can't imagine what it looks like at that large of a scale.

    Probe is looking at sensors that could increase pressure if needed. Wonder if this was a hack?

    Yep. I hope it's not (and there are countless other plausible explanations), but if it is, maybe it will get people to seriously start addressing grid vulnerability and resiliency. Right now it's just a lot of academics and talk.

    Specifically a sensor that was on a gas line that was taken out of service. If the line was cut and the pressure dropped, it could have signaled a regulator to increase pressure in the area.
