Yerba Buena Island
Authorities in San Francisco say they received reports that fireworks may have been responsible for a small yet visually stunning blaze on Yerba Buena Island.
More than 2,000 residents of Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island have endured more than two dozen power outages this year. Now the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission is looking into the problem.
Considered a “linchpin” of homeland security, a new center has opened on Yerba Buena Island aimed at making it easier for the Coast Guard to monitor vessels passing through the Bay.
The sun beamed across a clear blue sky and a marching band played as the Coast Guard cutter Aspen docked on Yerba Buena Island, five months after it was dispatched to the Gulf of Mexico to help clean up the BP spill.
