Breaking News–Gas Line Broken in Huntsville–13th & University Area Evacuated

Published on July 18, 2013 by Larry Crippen

Around 6 PM Thursday evening Huntsville City Secretary Lee Woodward notified KSAM personnel that a contractor had broken a 3-inch gas line at 13th and University in Huntsville.  Law enforcement and emergency personnel have been evacuating an area near the break in a 2 block to 1/2 mile radius.

It is estimated that it will take 2 to 4 hours to seal the line and open the area to the public.

City Emergency Management Coordinator John Waldo will notify KSAM when it is okay to return home.  We will have the “All Clear” on the air on 101.7 KSAM at that time.  Stay tuned, and thanks for your cooperation.
