Southern California Gas Leak

There was no questioning the presence of sulfurous scent in the air in Porter Ranch Ca. Starting in October of 2015, residents were forced to relocate during the next months while officials complete the necessary repairs to stop the leak. “This is the biggest community and environmental disaster I’ve ever seen, bar none,” said Mitchell Englander, who has represented Porter Ranch on the Los Angeles City Council since 2011. “Life there is not on hold — it’s on the edge and it’s on the brink of pandemonium. People are living with fear, uncertainty and doubt.” The insurance company has said that at least $1 billion in insurance coverage claims have been paid.
