Returning Home After Pipeline Explosion

Their homes are still standing, but that doesn't mean their troubles are over.

Although dozens of homes in San Bruno, California were destroyed by Thursday's pipeline blast and fire, residents of other homes returned Sunday to find them with varying degrees of damage.

Patrick Yu found that his home had been red-tagged, meaning it was heavily damaged, and that it would need a closer inspection before authorities could declare it safe.

He says he's had nightmares and headaches since the explosion and fire caused his ceiling to crash down next to him while he slept.

Pat and Roger Haro returned to find their home marked with a green tag, meaning they fared better than those with yellow or red tags.

Pat Haro says she felt "a whole lot better" when she saw that her house was still standing.
