COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Activities on the Texas A&M University campus have returned to normal after a natural gas leak prompted the evacuation of several residence halls and other campus buildings.
Officials at the school in College Station say the leak was discovered late Thursday morning at A&M’s central utility plant. Crews with Atmos (AT’-muhs) energy found the leak during a routine inspection.
A&M evacuated Hobby Hall, Neeley Hall, Hotard Hall, the Sbisa Dining Center and the central utility plant. Several nearby roads were also closed, as a precaution.
The buildings and roads were reopened about three hours later after the leak was isolated, according to a university statement. The campus has more than 58,000 students.
