The Southern California Gas Co.Wednesday opened a new Community Resource Center in the Porter Ranch Town Center as work continues to stem the flow of natural gas from a leak at the Aliso Canyon Storage Field.

The center will offer guidance on securing temporary accommodations, how to file a claim, and how to get free home air filtration and weather stripping to reduce odor, according to a Gas Co. statement.

The Community Resource Center will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends. It is located at 19731 Rinaldi St., just south of Ralphs grocery store in the Porter Ranch Town Center.

“We know that this situation has been frustrating and confusing for many families in the Porter Ranch community, and we apologize. Our new Community Resource Center will provide another way for them (area residents) to get the information they need,” said Gillian Wright, vice president of customer services for SoCalGas.

“We share everyone’s concerns about this leak’s ongoing impact on the community and the environment, and we are working as quickly and as safely as possible to stop it.”

The gas company also has created a website, www.AlisoUpdates.com, to provide updates on the relief well progress, air quality monitoring, community resources and other relevant information.
