Calif. gas pipe that exploded ranked high risk

(09-12) 12:47 PDT San Bruno, Calif. (AP) --

Federal and state investigators say the section of natural gas pipeline that ruptured and exploded in a deadly fireball near San Francisco had been categorized as high risk because it ran through a highly populated area.

Documents obtained by The Associated Press showed that Pacific Gas & Electric submitted paperwork to regulators that said a section of the same gas line — about two and half miles from the blast — was within "the top 100 highest risk line sections" in the utility's service territory.

Now were beginning to find that the explosion and resulting fires have occurred on a piece of pipeline that both the Federal and State governments call one of the top 100 riskiest in the area.

I only want to know is information like this readily available to (potential) home owners in the area. Aside from a criteria that may be a factor in home value, living above such risk must also factor into insurance costs too. I just hope this development doesn't hurt the home owners in any way. They've already been through enough.
