People have been flooding Chevron with claims after the Aug. 6 refinery fire, so many that the oil company yesterday opened a second help center where burned residents (not literally) can go demand money.

Here's what we know:

The new claims center is located at North Richmond Community Heritage Senior Apartments on 1555 Fred Jackson Way, and is open daily until Friday, Aug. 24, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The other help center, which opened last week, is located at Nevin Community Center, and will remain in operation until Saturday Aug. 25. After that, all new claims must be submitted by phone at (866) 260-7881.

The line will remain open as long as people are still filing claims, Chevron officials say. They are is hoping (fingers crossed) to reimburse all claims within a month, as long as people provide the needed documentation.

As of this morning, 10,700 people have filed claims, according to Chevron.

So go get your money from Chevron -- you deserve it.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
