Gas Well Explosion: Tucker Residents Evacuate

Palestine, Nov.23, 2009

A ruptured gas line in Tucker area, caused residents to evacuate.

Anderson County sheriff Greg Taylor says the gas line was emiting

a white cloud, and making a loud noise. The 12 inch pipeline rupt-

ured about 4:30 p.m. There were no injuries. It was unclear if the

line was repaired, however residents were allowed to return to

their homes, after Atmos Energy shut the line off." It could have

been a lot worse than it was, natural gas can be very dangerous

when it's floating around," said Taylor.
