Yesterday step ONE in a two-step process of sealing the leak was completed. The leak could be permanently sealed by the end of next week. We are pleased with this development but there is so much more to be resolved.
The biggest gas leak in California history has driven more than 10,000 people from their homes. From late October to early December children were attending their Porter Ranch schools despite the fact that the air they were breathing caused them to have headaches, stomach aches, respiratory issues and uncontrollable nosebleeds.
Socal gas & parent company Sempra Energy maintain that the emissions from the leak can’t hurt residents and that there are no long-term effects. How can we trust them?
