Blob Attacks L.A.
There is something attacking a 120 foot square area of Los Angeles. A big black blob is oozing from under the streets. Evacuations are occurring and the Red Cross has been sent into action.
They think the blob is related to petroleum drilling near by, but they are uncertain. One thing they do know this big blog is hot and shifting houses off their foundations by nearly a foot.
The LA Daily News reports:
"About 200 residents were forced to flee as a hazardous materials team and dozens of firefighters worked throughout the day to identify what was first deemed "a black tarry substance" and later morphed into a "watery mud."'
"A 120-foot stretch of Olive buckled 1 1/2 feet, he said. The pre-1933 unreinforced masonry apartment building shifted one foot from its foundation. Sidewalks were as hot as Jacuzzis. "
In the 60 degree weather that L.A. is experiencing the blob for some reason is hot, near 120F.
No word yet if their will be a new science fiction movie "Blob 2", I remember seeing the first one.
