The explosion reached over 100ft high and was heard over 30km away.

The analysis of Williams Gas Company's pipeline showed that the thinning wasn't fully captured by the tools used to examine the pipes in service, said John Batchelder, a pipeline integrity expert with the company.

The gas pipe explosion occurred around 7:45 am on Sunday, 14th September 2008 near the town of Appromattox, Virginia. A September 14 article on the Lynchburg News Advance website notes:

"Geraldine, don't you think it's a bit dangerous for the kids to be doing that?"   
"Nonsense Juanita, they're smart enough to not let themsevles get hurt, and they're only blowing up ants"
