Porter Ranch Gas Leak Is Now Officially An Emergency
The catastrophic gas leak in the Porter Ranch community is getting worse by the day, and last week was finally classified as an emergency.
On January 6, Governor Jerry Brown finally declared a state of emergency for Porter Ranch. This comes after 160 million pounds of toxic gas has already been released into the air. The situation has gotten so bad that L.A. County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich called the disaster a “Mini Chernobyl“, referring to the 1986 nuclear meltdown in the former Soviet Union.
Southern California Gas Company is reportedly “not even close” to stopping the leak that’s been going since October 2015. Every day the leak isn’t stopped, more methane is dumped into the air of Porter Ranch and surounding communities.
