Tara Siler/KQED

KQED Reporter Tara Siler has covered the San Bruno gas pipeline story ever since explosion, more than seven months ago. A lot of her coverage has dealt with regulations, oversight and fines. But her story that aired this morning on The California Report focused on how people are deciding whether to stay and rebuild their lives and homes, or move away.

You can listen to Tara talk with Kelly Wilkinson about some of the personal reporting she did for the story.
