ASHLAND - Everyone in the Broadway to North Palomino Ridge area is evacuated Wednesday after a gas leak. The Missouri Department of Transportation is assisting with the situation by letting drivers know where streets are closed. MoDOT has also posted signs at Henry Clay Boulevard and Palis Nichols Road. Drivers can still get through those streets, but the signs are a warning of closures ahead.
Officials estimate it is a six inch gas line that broke. The gas leak has stopped as of about 11:15 a.m. The post office is still evacuated and Post Master Alisa Calvert said residents may or may not be able to use its services Wednesday.
