No Evacuations Needed For Gulfport Gas Leak

GULFPORT (WLOX) -- A gas leak in Gulfport closed the road leading to the Harrison County Jail Wednesday morning.

Fire Chief Pat Sullivan told WLOX News a contractor cut a gas line while digging on Larkin Smith Drive off Industrial Seaway Road. Center Point Energy crews were busy making repairs, and the road reopened shortly afterward. No evacuations were needed.

The construction work that cut the gas line is part of an improvement project in the Harrison County Industrial Park.
