There are 55 more people that have joined a lawsuit against PG&E seeking damages related to the San Bruno pipeline explosion. More than 90 families are now suing the utility.

They claim PG&E could have prevented the tragedy that killed eight people and destroyed more than three dozen homes.

The people suing include folks who were injured, and others whose homes were either destroyed or severely damaged.

So far, investigators believe shoddy welds in the pipe caused it to explode.
