Buyer beware. These people bought their houses well after the gas storage facility was built. They should have thought twice about buying a home next to the facility. Now the residence of Porter Ranch want to punish everyone in the region with higher gas bills by shutting that facility down.
I say tough. If there was no disclosure of the facility go after the developer to recoup your loses. Don't affect my life.
This is just like the Muni airport in Santa Monica. People bought homes at the end of the runway and adjacent to the airport due to the price differential. Now they want to close the airport to raise their home value. I keep asking these people where will our supplies come in during an earthquake. None of these people have felt a 6 or 7 magnitude earthquake or knew the freeway collapsed during the last big quake. All they cared about is their home value.
