Report: Gas leak forces dozens of home evacuations in Metairie

December 01, 2018 - 11:17 pm

Dozens of homes in an area of Metairie west of David Drive had to evacuate due to a gas leak, according to media reports.

Fire officials were going door-to-door checking residents homes, worried the gas had penetrated sewer lines, meaning it could flow into homes. Brad Migliore, Third District Fire Chief, said they are telling people to leave the area, and check back occasionally to see if the all-clear has been given to return.

Utility workers are making repairs in the area of Lynnette Drive and Caribou Court.
