Great.... Now my house stinks of smoke...
We are under "Shelter in place" order.
Refineries are scary places when you take in consideration the kinds of chemicals they use and they can explode with no warning. If your house smells like smoke I'd be questioning what kind of crap is going into your lungs. I haven't witnessed it myself but I know many people who have been hospitalized from smoke produced by refinery fires. Nasty stuff that should never be contacted by living organisms in any way.
Not to freak you out but that's the way it is.
Yep, I could see the smoke from my place...fortunately the wind isn't blowing it my way...
The wind is taking the smoke away from my house, but I can still smell it very faintly. The refinery sirens had ben going on and off all afternoon and night.
If I were still living in Berkeley I'd probably have a respiratory fit.
Yipes, hope all goes well man, fortunately I'm over in Alameda so we're away from the sirens and with the bay breeze the smoke should keep away from here...otherwise my asthma would drive me crazy.
I know what you mean. I can feel my asthma starting to act up a bit.... This is going to be one of those nights I guess...
my firend heard the thing blow up, and he's in San Jose.
Which way is the smoke going? Towards Milpitas?
wow didn't know how amny people here lived in the upper bay area
Great something else to raise the price of gasoline on.
Got to love NIMBY's
Just heard a statement from Chevron's spokesman saying no workers were injured or hurt. Let's hope this will end up soon.
That's 45mins away from where I live.
