Calling for Gas Tank Reform

By Gldmeier @gldmeier

We woke up this morning to news of a terrible story in Jerusalem. A leak from a gas tank (a tank for supplying gas to a house) led to an explosion,. Part of the building collapsed and a family was killed - wiped oout.

The only thing I have to say about this, besides for Baruch Dayan HaEmes, is that gas tanks should be made illegal. They are old and dangerous. The gas companies should be required to lay new infrastructure to pipe the gas right in - even to old houses. They should not be using gas tanks any longer.
We need this gas tank reform. True, it is only one accident, but everywhere else it is just an accident waiting to happen. The first apartment we lived in after marriage was an old building that used these gas balloons. Besides for being inefficient and a nuisance, they are terribly dangerous. It is a miracle, in my opinion, that accidents do not happen more frequently. it might be a part of the special protection the Jews of Eretz Yisrael have, but it is time to no longer rely on miracles...
