Erin Brockovich: They’re being told, “This is dangerous. Get out.” And they need to get out. That land, those homes, it’s useless now.
They’ve got a situation, they’re trying to tell the community clearly, “This is a mandatory evacuation.” That means danger.
There’s serious gas pressure there. There is absolutely risk and potential for explosion.
