Reported pipeline explosion rocks parts of Missouri

Woke us up in Sedalia, 15 miles away. Thought there was an earthquake or something!! You could hear the roar from the fire for 10 to 20 minutes afterwards. Praying for our friends and family in that area as well as the emergency crews on duty. Stay safe!!

HOUSTONIA, Mo. — An overnight explosion at the Panhandle Eastern Pipeline Company near Hughesville, Mo., in Pettis County lit up the sky for miles early Friday morning.  Fox 4 viewers from more than 30 miles away reported seeing the fireball in the sky.

A spokesperson from Panhandle Eastern says a 30-inch pipeline ruptured just before midnight, causing the explosion. Panhandle Eastern Pipeline Co. is about 90 miles from Kansas City.

No injuries were reported. Three homes were evacuated, but by mid-morning on Friday, the residents had been allowed back in.

“The gas has been rerouted from this area so there will be no impact to customer deliveries. The company and the appropriate regulatory agencies will conduct an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident,” wrote Vicki Granado, spokesperson for Panhandle Eastern Pipe Line Co.

Investigators are still working to determine was caused the explosion.

The 3rd Annual Persimmon Report

Previously I have had annual Persimmon Reports that predict the weather as shown inside a seed of the Persimmon fruit. Check out the link above for a great explanation of how the folklore works.

I decided to share this year in a colorful slideshow for a view of our beautiful Katy Trail.
