On October 23, 2015 a massive methane gas leak was discovered at the Porter Ranch natural gas extraction facility in Southern California. Thousands of residents of the area were displaced after experiencing headaches, nosebleeds and nausea, and the Governor of California Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency. Alexandra Nagy, of Food & Water Watch, was amongst the 14 women who risked arrest to as part of the Break Free mobilization, calling on California to keep the Porter Ranch extraction facility closed.
