Gas line explosion leaves crater in Weedpatch
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- PG&E is trying to determine how a major natural gas pipeline ruptured during testing south of Bakersfield on Monday. The explosion created a crater in the rural community of Weedpatch in Kern County.
The utility company was pressure testing the pipe as part of a system-wide look at its network following a deadly pipeline explosion in San Bruno. No one was hurt in Monday morning's rupture.
The utility says it is not sure how it will affect natural gas supplies for PG&E customers this winter.
