At 5:20 p.m., a major gas leak was continuing just behind Henderson and Sons Funeral Home, North Chapel, at the intersection of Old Summerville Road and McGrady Road. Witnesses say they’re easily hearing the loud “hissing” sound from the leak. First responders have roads in the area blocked at this hour. Floyd 911 reports no evacuations but that motorists are asked to avoid the area until further notice.
This is the second major leak in our area in under two weeks. On May 29, a car struck a gas line near Darlington School, forcing the school to evacuate (classes were out for the summer) and closing area roads for several hours.
