Gas Line Leak Causes Evacuation of Condos

A cracked gas line on Thursday resulted in the evacuation of the Harbors of Haverstraw Condominium Complex. According to officials no injuries were reported and Orange & Rockland crews began repairs immediately after shutting off the gas. According to O&R spokesman Mike Donovan the gas began seeping from the line around 8:19 AM after a contractor accidentally hooked it while doing some work. Donovan stated that the windy day was a benefit to everyone, since the leak was outside of the buildings no one was physically affected by it. Twenty condos in two buildings lost gas service, though residents were allowed back into their homes around 9:35 AM.
