Gas Leak at Whittier Elementary School

Whittier Elementary School is evacuated after a gas leak this morning.

Nearly 700 students were moved to Ochoa Middle School, as a precaution.

They had lunch there while waiting for crews to repair the damage.

Someone operating a lawn mower ran over the gas meter, so it was dug up, and fixed.

No injuries were reported, and around 1 p.m. Whittier was given the all clear, so students returned back to their classrooms.
