Did anyone go out to see the cokers last night? What? You haven’t heard about the cokers landing in Redondo Harbor? The first two made landfall Monday and took over the streets last night on their way to the El Segundo Chevron Refinery. The movement of these massive objects will take place over the next two weeks and everything you need to know about it is right here: http://southbaybyjackie.com/coker-transport-schedule-february-20-february-27-march-6/.
