For at least the second night in a row, flaring at the Tesoro Refinery in Martinez, CA has caused an eerie orange glow to flicker through-out the sky. Video taken by Tom Griffith near the refinery entrance across from the Food Bank just off of Arnold Drive at about 9:30 PM on the way home from dinner. Earlier in the day, another MEG member saw a huge dark black plume of smoke coming from a visible flame in the direction of Tesoro. This flame was visible from about one mile south of the 242 exit going north on I-680 at 4 PM. Another friend reported that the flames were visible from the Alhambra Hills area, where he had never seen them before the last couple of days.
