Lede Exercise 11

Four families were evacuated after Texaco gasoline truck overturns on the outskirts of town flooding streets and sewer lines.

Fire chief Charles Hochandel says: “The firemen followed catastrophe and hazmat procedures set up beforehand for just such an occurrence.”

Sewer-lines, streets, and ditches surrounding 48th Street and Correctionville Road were flooded with gas after the truck overturned. Streets in that area were closed for two hours and cars were rerouted to side streets while firemen flushed the gas out.
