Fire at Bay Area oil facility prompts shelter in place

By the afternoon.

Look for mostly clear skies overnight.

A fall storm currently in the pacific will bring clouds our way by wednesday afternoon.

That alone should cool us down a little... look for valley highs in the middle to upper 70's on wednesday, but we'll remain dry during the day.

Skies will turn cloudy wednesday night, and a little light rain will fall overnight.

It's now looking like around 1/10" of rain for us in the valley, with locally higher amounts in the mountains.

Not a huge storm, but every little drop helps!

An explosion and fire tore through storage tanks at the nustar refinery in the bay area community of crockett today.

It happened just after two this afternoon in the massive storage farm for petroleum tanks.

Sheriff's deputies ordered people in several nearby communities to shelter in place -- they're worried about hazardous materials being released in the thick, black smoke.

A phillips 66 refinery is located next door, but does not appear to be involved.

The cause of the explosion and fire are still unknown.

No injuries have yet
