NTSB LAUNCHES TEAM TO INVESTIGATE

APPARENT GAS PIPELINE EXPLOSION IN CALIFORNIA

 

************************************************************

 

      The National Transportation Safety Board has launched

a Go Team to investigate last night's explosion and fire in

a California neighborhood that appears to be related to a

natural gas pipeline.

 

      Local authorities in San Bruno, California, report

that dozens of homes were destroyed in the accident.  The

extent of injuries and possible fatalities is still being

assessed.

 

      Ravi Chhatre will serve as Investigator-in-Charge for

the 4-member team from the NTSB.  The Board's Vice Chairman,

Christopher Hart, is accompanying the team and will serve as

principle spokesman for the on-scene investigation. 

 

      Peter Knudson is the public affairs officer

accompanying the team.  Once the team arrives in California,

Mr. Knudson may be reached on his cell phone at 202-557-

1350.
