RRafael2 - No agenda in that post. Before you even know the facts you attack an entire industry.

This appears to have been a blown-out horizontal directional bore for a utility pipeline. Yes it was a natural gas pipeline, but stop to consider that your local gas utility has been using various forms of directional bores for years to minimize damage to your yard when they install a service to your house.

Your whine about "the industry" is getting a little stale and musty.

Orwellian double speak at work here. Let's call it "flooding" instead of an industrial accident due to industry carelessness. Let's call it "brine" and "cakes" instead of toxic radioactive waste. Let's talk about how lucky this family is to have their whole lives uprooted by this unfortunate "flooding" just as winter sets in. Let's call a spade a spade, this industry is dangerous and eventually will hurt all of us. Our community does not have to be a sacrifice zone. Our prayers go out to this family as they deal with this devastation.

Should she call Rush Limbaugh first?

Thank goodness attorneys are available to deliver justice, rather than leaving this family helpless and homeless. Some people complain about attorneys until they need one.
