Residents Still Shaken By California Pipeline Blast
SAN BRUNO, Calif. — Diane Himuro was eager to get back into her home Sunday, three days after a deadly ball of flame from a ruptured natural gas pipeline ravaged her suburban San Francisco neighborhood.
"I still feel like a tourist watching this," she said. "It doesn't seem real."
From the crest of a hill, Himuro and her daughters surveyed the neighborhood, waiting for police to allow them back into their home. Sunday was the first time residents could return since the explosion Thursday evening.
At least 49 homes were destroyed, said Robyn Thaw, spokeswoman for San Mateo County. Ten more have been marked by inspectors as damaged.
