Gas leak creates geyser in Winslow Township

Posted: Updated:
WINSLOW TOWNSHIP -

Residents were forced out of their homes Tuesday due to a gas leak in Winslow Township.

The pressure from the leak, mixed with ground water, created a geyser in the street.

A contractor doing work in the area accidentally broke the line. Everyone was evacuated for their safety.

South Jersey gas crews are still repairing lines in the area and will monitor gas levels in the neighborhood for the next few days.
