What Caused A Massive Mysterious Explosion In Indianapolis, Indiana?


On the night of Saturday, November 10th, a massive explosion occurred in a neighborhood in South Indianapolis, IN, that left eighty houses damaged, and thirty one of those completely destroyed. Two people have also reportedly died. The cause of the explosion has yet to be determined.  The common theory seems to be a gas explosion.

There was one story about a lady in the neighborhood thinking she had a furnace leak, days before the explosion, but there seems to be no connection there because as CBS reports,  "Scott Davis, president and principal engineer of GexCon US, an explosion investigation firm in Bethesda, Md., said it's hard to believe a furnace could cause the damage seen in the Indianapolis neighborhood. He noted that most furnaces have multiple safety switches that must be triggered before any gas is used."

The only reason I am covering this is because the sketchy way the media seems to be covering it.  At WTHR.com, "Indianas News Leader", they have been covering this since the story began, and they have yet , to my knowledge, go in depth about the people living in the two main houses of the explosion.  They seem to be asking a few neighbors all types of questions, but never ask about the owners of the houses, where the explosion originated.

Like any major event, there are conspiracy theories circulating, everything from the explosion being the first predator drone attack in the United States, to this neighborhood being a victim of a meteor shower.  I will keep my eyes and ears open for any new information on this.
