Since the recent discovery of a methane gas leak in Porter Ranch, California at the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility has received a lot of attention in the news over the last few months little has been discussed of how insurance companies are looking at the situation. Thousands of families have either fled the Porter Ranch community or been relocated due to health concerns as a result of the gas leak. Their relocation has left homes vacant until the leak has been properly fixed. Schools, such as Castlebay Lane Elementary and the newly built Porter Ranch Community School, have been closed indefinitely and relocated to nearby facilities as well.
I can’t tell you how much I enjoy being a part of the local community here is Southern California. A few weeks ago I was able to work a booth at a concert in Woodland Hills for Queen Nation where I was able to meet many local individuals and families.
From time to time, my wife and I talk about how we wish we could freeze time and enjoy our family as it is forever. Townsley Portraits has made that possible.
Stuart Townsley was actually our wedding photographer and has been a friend ever since. When he started his own photo studio, we decided to ask Stuart if we could set-up a session for us and our son. We met him at the Santa Monica Pier, in Los Angeles, and spent about 30 minutes just playing around the area and letting Stuart snap away. A few weeks later, we met again at the Townsley Portraits photo studio and showroom and saw the amazing photographs he had taken. They were breathtaking, and we wanted every one of them.
Were you awoken by the 4.4 magnitude earthquake today with an epicenter in Westwood? It’s been a long time since we had an earthquake of that size in the Los Angeles metro area.
After making sure my family was alright, it occurred to me that I should bring up the concern of earthquake insurance to my clients.
