Natural gas pipeline explodes near Otterburne

8 posts in this topic

A natural gas pipeline explosion near Otterburne, Man., 50 kilometres south of Winnipeg, has left thousands without heat as temperatures drop to -20 C, or -34 C with the wind chill.

A fire is out after burning for more than 12 hours at the site of a natural gas pipeline explosion near Otterburne, Man., about 50 kilometres south of Winnipeg. But officials say there are now natural gas outages affecting as many as 4,000 people in nearby communities, where temperatures dipped to near -20 C overnight.

The Rural Municipality of Hanover declared a state of local emergency Saturday afternoon in a release that said the outage was expected to last 24 to 72 hours.

I hope everyone is able to stay warm through all of this.

Hopefully most of these people have a woodstove as supplement heat.

I do. It sure keeps the house cozy. Haven't used it much the past 2 years. But this year is different.

I've cut my heating bill down by at least fifty percent via the woodstove (and I get the wood for free). Great invention XD

And some are quite energy efficient.

back in the days when there was nothing but wood stoves, houses were build around wood stoves, with air ducts\ voids in walls and floors, just like romans build bath houses. those wood burning stoves were used to cook and heat. and had the best bed on top of it.

many years ago i was present during demolitionof such old house, it is amasing how they were build. there was so much ducts, chambers.. we definatly lost that trade, what a shame.
