    Alert.

    If you have family or friends in San Bruno, California please pay close attention.

    At 6:00 PST last night, a 24-inch gas line owned by Pacific Gas & Electric exploded. The resulting blast and fire has destroyed 53 Homes and damaged 120 Homes. Six people are confirmed dead, that number is expected to rise. An unknown number remain injured.

    If you have been unable to contact your family or wish to find out their condition the number to call is 1-650-626-7180.

    The American Red Cross has put out a call for blood donors. Type 0- (Universal Donor) is in desperate need. If you can donate, please do so.

    I haven't been able to follow the news today, but this is horrifying. What's the latest?

    The death toll remain at Six, but authorities expect to find more bodies. Fire Fighters have entered the blast zone, no reports on what was found. An unknown number of people are injured. Acting Governor Able Maldonodo has mobilized the The CDF (California Department Forestryj) Fire Fighters to assist.

    There are urgent calls for type 0- blood. I'm going to be donating later on today.

    Thanks, traveler. Not much we can do from the other side of the country but pray. It's just heartbreaking. :(

    Not a bad idea as long as the majority of it goes to the people effected by this and not into a govt acct where it will be handed out to every illegal swimming across with their hand out.

    I expect the libs to start bashing cali at any moment.
    Kind of like they did to Texas after the fertilizer explosion.
    But this will be different somehow.
