    Saw this on FOX like 3 hours ago. A gas line exploded. A 50 year old pipe has failed and exploded. This stuff makes me glad we are going into more debt to get some shit straight. Hopefully the overhaul of the US's infrastructure will come to fruition and not some political scandal.

    My cousin's boyfriend was living around there and his family heard the explosion so they ran out of the house.
    It is pretty scary though...

    Now we all know California is bankrupt, they can't find money to fix old pipes.

    So the gas company (PG&E) was told of a leak days earlier, investigated, and did nothing? Sounds like someone (or more likely, several people) need several life time prison sentences and the company needs to be hit with a crippling fine. This is completely unacceptable, and very sad. The pictures are brutal...

    Proves people will say anything out of fear though. People reporting seeing a plane strike the ground when it's actually an underground pipe leak isn't only stupid, it gives emergency personal an inaccurate description of the situation and puts more people at risk.

    "9:58: Someone called into the KRON 4 newscast and said on-air that the explosion was caused by Howard Stern's penis. We're certain this is not worth investigating."

    That was only a few miles from my house. It was close enough that I could hear the helicopters and planes flying over it to spray it and stuff. Pretty damn scary.
