Week-End Updates: Mysterious Booms And Explosions, Large Earthquakes, Fish Die-Offs Around The World

Underground Explosion In Downtown Albany New York March 23 2013

No one was injured in an explosion this morning near the Albany Visitor Center. But after a series of manhole explosions and an underground fire last fall, local residents are concerned. Broken glass and a damaged window sill was the worst of the above-ground damage left behind by the explosion, which launched four manhole covers into the air at 5:30am Saturday. It happened at Broadway and Clinton just in front of the Historic Quackenbush House – now the Olde English Pub. Albany fire officials say the explosion was caused by a fire sparked by an underground electrical problem. But it’s the third accident in just six months in downtown Albany. Last September, a burning cable led to an underground explosion in the afternoon, blowing a roughly three-hundred pound manhole cover into the air along Pearl Street. The following week, 3,700 people lost power after another underground fire. – WNYT

Officials are attributing this and the other explosions to the city’s aging infrastructure. Could it also be the result of an active earth?

Here another video presenting a summary of explosions that occurred around the world. I already presented some but I find the videos of Real World Report always give a good view about where and why such blasts happened.
