Here are tales of incompetence and greed.

In a disaster, first responders are a few minutes away, typically 2 to 10, while gas companies can be hours before on scene, and many more hours before able to implement remediation. These companies need to learn from first responders how to respond more rapidly to crises. Alternatively, authorize and train fire departments to fix the problems.

If you plan to blow up your own home, in an insurance scam, please do not also blow up 100 other homes in your neighborhood.
Smell of gas means a gas leak needs to be reported to the gas company and to 911, with evacuation of the building until it is fixed. It does not mean using deodorant to cover up the smell, until the leak accumulates so much that the explosion blows up all of downtown.

We continue to have business enterprises working in dangerous industries, with no safety procedures, or proper training for employees. The money saved by skipping safety, is microscopic compared to the costs of resulting disasters.

Mapping technology has vastly improved in recent years. Pipeline and utility companies need to upgrade this to better show where their underground facilities are located, to aid construction companies avoid conflict, and local first responders know what to expect where.

Yes, there is an expense upgrading a pipeline to make it practical to shut down the flow in a crisis. There is also an expense when hundreds of thousands of gallons are lost, in a disaster, before the flow can be cut off.

Approx 200,000 miles of pipelines in the USA do NOT come under federal regulation. Thank industry lobbyists.

Here is the main document:http://www.scribd.com/doc/114094060/Indy-Boom
All area residents now accounted for, according to some news stories, where other earlystories list specific persons not yet located (e.g. boyfriend of some woman who was outof town at time of explosion).Many residents fled in pajamas.Massive evacuation via IndyGo buses. Red Cross served initial needs of the community;area churches added to relief effort; other NGOs arrived, such as the Salvation Army.

Mapping
I have seen articles describing the color codes, and I have seen maps with homes withcolors, but no explanations.Homes color coded without explanation.http://www.wthr.com/category/251036/southeast-side-explosion-mapGreen, Yellow, Orange, Red.Before & After viewshttp://www.indystar.com/interactive/article/99999999/NEWS/121112021/ 
8343 Field Fare Way = Glenn and GloriaOlvey
8349 Field Fare Way = Mrs. Shirley and 12 year old daughter, not home at timeof explosion. Mr. Shirley speculates an incorrectly repaired furnace could be thecause. Many professionals explain how the Shirley speculations could notpossibly be true, but authorities finally trace the source of the explosion to theShirley home. The true explanation may be other than their speculations.
