Residents evacuated in Delaware County
RYAN, Iowa (CBS 2/Fox 28) -- A gas leak prompted evacuations and road closures in Delaware County today. This is the latest information CBS 2 has obtained from the Delaware County Sheriff's Office:
Due to a natural gas leak approximately 3 miles south of Manchester, Delaware County is evacuated Hwy 13 south of Manchester from 2 miles north of the 2500 block of Hwy 13, east from Hwy 13 to 180th Ave, 1 mile west of Hwy 13, and 1 mile south of the 2500 block of Hwy 13.
Officials say about 75 homes were evacuated. Officials took the precaution because high winds were pushing the winds into Manchester. Fortunately, winds were also helping to disperse the gas.
Officials are hoping to reopen the highway in the area soon.
