Henderson Gas Leak Prompts Evacuations

A gas leak in western Kentucky has prompted officials to evacuate ten homes as a precaution.

Henderson County Emergency Management Director Larry Koerber told The Gleaner in Henderson that workers are monitoring the gas and will keep the houses evacuated until the location is safe.

The site is on Green River Road in Henderson between Beechwood and U.S. 60. The Henderson Fire Department and Public Works have blocked the road as workers dig to find the leak.
