Porter Ranch, LA's Ghost Town

The Porter Ranch area of Los Angeles is now a ghost town.
Over 2500 residents have moved out due to a massive natural gas leak at the Southern California Aliso Canyon Storage Facility.
Another 1500 residents are poised to move out soon. The leaking natural gas is a health hazard.
An estimated 77 million kilograms of methane gas have been released in to the atmosphere so far from the leak at the Aliso Canyon Storage Facility.
Residents and their pets near the site have been dealing with foul odors and nosebleeds, headaches, nausea and other ailments.
