SoCal Gas, LA Officials Agree To Relocate Porter Ranch Residents


SANDRA: GOOD AFTERNOON, EVERYONE, I’M SANDRA MITCHELL. OUR TOP STORY ON “KCAL 9 NEWS.” IT IS A DEVELOPING STORY FORCED OUT OF THEIR HOMES BECAUSE OF A BIG GAS LEAK. WELL, NOW SO CAL GAS AND CITY OF L.A. HAVE REACHED AN AGREEMENT. KCAL 9 RANDY PAGE IS LIVE IN THE WESTLAKE DISTRICT FOR US WITH WHAT’S GOING ON. RANDY. THIS IS A DECISION AND AGREEMENT A FEW HOURS IN THE MAKING, THE CITIES FOR THE CITIES ATTORNEY OFFICE AND ALSO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA GAS SHOWED NUP COURT THIS MORNING. THEY MET IN THE JUDGE’S CHAMBERS WHEN THE JUDGE TOLD THEM TO GO OUTSIDE THE COURTROOM AND COME UP WITH AN AGREEMENT. HAMMER OUT AN AGREEMENT RIGHT AWAY. WELL, TWO HOURS LATER THEY CAME BACK INTO COURT, AND THEY SAID THEY HAD REACHED AN AGREEMENT. HERE ARE THE BULLET POINTS. FIRST OF ALL, SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA GAS HAS AGREED THAT RESIDENTS WHO WANT TO LEAVE THE AREA WILL BE RELOCATED WITHIN 24 TO 72 HOURS. SECONDLY SOME RETIRED JUDGES ARE GOING TO BE IDENTIFIED OR SERVE AS MEDIATORS. SO IF ANY OF THE RESIDENTS ARE NOT HAPPY WITH THE WAY THINGS ARE UNFOLDING, THEY CAN GO TO THOSE JUDGES TO TRY TO BE HEARD. THIRD, SECURITY WILL BE PROVIDED FOR THE VACATE HOMES AND IT’S WORTH NOTING THAT THE LAPD WILL BE CONSULTED. AND WHATEVER RECOMMENDATIONS THE LAPD SAYS ARE NEEDED THERE, SO CAL GAS SAYS THEY WILL MAKE SURE THOSE ARE PUT INTO PLACE. AND FINALLY PETS WILL BE BOARDED. THE RESIDENTS CAN GO TO THESE NEW PLACES KNOWING THAT THEIR PETS ARE WELL CARED FOR. HERE’S CHIEF DEPUTY ATTORNEY. INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT FOR THOSE RESIDENTS WHO SUFFERED GREATLY THAT THEY GET COURT ORDER RELIEF SO THERE’S REALLY SOMETHING HERE THAT’S GOING TO FORCE THE GAS COMPANY TO DO WHAT THEY SAY THEY’RE GOING TO DO. A PLAINTIFF’S ATTORNEY WHO REPRESENTS 100 HOMEOWNERS IN PORTER RANCH. IF ANYTHING I SUPPOSE THIS GETS PEOPLE OUT OF THE IMMEDIATE DANGER OF HAVING TO INHALE METHANE OVER THE HOLIDAYS WHEN FAMILIES COME TOGETHER. WHAT IT’S GOING TO DO LONG-TERM, THOUGH, I THINK IT REMAINS TO BE SEEN. I THINK THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM WILL HAVE TO SEE HOW THE FOLKS CAN BE MADE WHOLE LONG TERM. BUT CERTAINLY THE PEOPLE NOT BEING ABLE TO MOVE OUT OF THAT COMMUNITY, AND THEY WANTED TO, THIS ADDRESSES THAT. REPORTER: SO DOES THIS MEAN THAT EACH AND EVERY RESIDENT OF PORTER RANCH CAN EXPECT TO BE RELOCATED WITHIN 24 TO 72 HOURS? NOT EXACTLY. THIS MEANS THAT THE SO CAL GAS WILL DO EVERYTHING IT CAN TO GET PEOPLE WITHIN THAT TIME FRAME AND IF THE RESIDENTS ARE NOT HAPPY THE WAY IT’S GOING, THEY HAVE NOW THESE MEDIATORS, THESE RETIRED JUDGES THEY CAN GO TO. NOW, WE’RE TOLD THEY’RE GOING
