Watch Patricia McPherson video interview, published May 2014, of her efforts to document and have responsible city engineers fix a life threatening fire hazard on Miracle Mile, along Museum Row Wilshire Blvd, surrounding the Los Angeles La Brea Tar Pits.
Using an Infrared Video camera to capture gas cloud plumes of leaking methane gas (CH4) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S - Sewer gas), and other more dangerous gases, escaping out of the sidewalk man holes, and from between buildings, and in parking structures, Patricia tells you of inadequate city mitigation efforts, lack of warning signs, and what might be done to make the streets of LA safe again.
Below are stills from the video.

It's been proposed, in 2014, to have the city pay to determine the full extent of methane danger to babies, children, elderly and immune compromised, by measuring many streets. With this additional information, methods to mitigate could then be discussed.|
