The San Bruno Explosion: Could It Happen Here?

Hosted by

Four people were killed and 37 homes were destroyed when a natural-gas pipeline blew up with so much force that a 28-foot section landed 100 feet away from the crater left by the blast. Inspectors from the PG&E and agencies of the state and federal governments still don’t know what happened.
