Chevron Power Outage Still A Mystery

The Chevron refinery in Richmond shut down most major units Monday morning after it suffered a major power outage.

Contra Costa County Health Services Haz-Mat specialist Mike Wedl says the power went out at about 7:23 am. He says the refinery shut down most major units. County crews are keeping an eye on air quality around the refinery.

Wedl says Chevron generates its own power, and thereĀ“s no immediate word on why it went out.
