Federal Aid Once Again Denied to San Bruno, California Gas Pipeline Explosion Victims


Despite an appeal by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has once again denied federal disaster aid to the victims of the San Bruno, California gas line explosion. Thirty-five homes were destroyed and eight people killed when the PG&E gas line exploded in September of this year.

FEMA maintains that local resources have not been overwhelmed and federal aid is not necessary, and will not give the people of San Bruno the millions in aid requested by California officials. Thus far the final cost of the explosion and subsequent fires is unknown.
