  • A gas leak was reported today shortly after 2 p.m. in Palmyra in the area of 7th and Apple. As of about 2:30, residents within two blocks are being evacuated. The community building in Palmyra is open to take in evacuated people.
    Update: 2:55 p.m.: The perimeter was moved another block from the leak and deputies were blocking streets to keep people out of the area after the size of the leaking pipe was determined.
    Udate: 3:30, Quite a bit of digging had been done to find the break in the people and it was still being worked on.
    Update: 4 p.m., repairs are expected to take another 45 minutes. Area is pretty much barricaded off, but deputies are on hand to make sure no one wanders into the area. The gas line has been dug down to and now efforts are underway to cap it near the main line.
