Chevron Refinery is on fire - and a lot of crude is burning and filling the sky with deadly, toxic shit. If this is in the wrong section or someone already posted this somewhere else, my apologies. This is the kind of thing that freaks me the fuck out, so I quickly came over here to pass it along. The Shelter In Place Warning is in effect until 1:30 PM tomorrow. Stay safe if you live in the area.

As seen from someone in San Francisco:

Richmond, North Richmond, and San Pablo area CA are the ones specified. I figured this stuff might drift around, though.

Let's just hope it doesn't start storming and raining - that's DEFINITELY how we get zombies.


It sounds like they contained the fire and lifted the Shelter in Place advisory.
Well, that's a wrap folks! Once again we don't get zombies.

Good job environmentalists! Way to prevent modernized refineries from being built and fuck yourselves right in the ass!

Darwinism in Northern California.

These fucking stories that have the promise of zombies and don't deliver are ruining my internet experience.

Richmond is in the East Bay, pretty close to Oakland. Zombies would improve that area.
