A Morgan City school and several nearby businesses are evacuated at this hour because of a gas line break.
Police received the call around 7:45 A. M. of a gas leak near the corner of Railroad Avenue and Grizzafi Street. Officials say Wyandotte Elementary and the businesses adjacent to Railroad Avenue have been evacuated as a precaution. Police say no one has been injured and that no fires have started.
A local gas company is on scene capping the gas leak. Police say the crew is waiting on residual gas to bleed out of the line before reopening the area. No timetable has been set for the end of the evacuation.
