According to the Los Angeles Times, due to the apparent risk of gas explosion injuries, parts of Beverly Hills, California were evacuated today after a rupture occurred in an underground gas line at a construction site. The construction site is for a public works warehouse on 3rd Street in Beverly Hills.
Various entertainment companies had to evacuate their offices due to the risk of a Los Angeles gas explosion. Only minutes ago, it was announced that the gas line rupture had been successfully repaired and the evacuation order was lifted. Fortunately, no injuries were reported from the Beverly Hills gas line rupture.
Southern California Gas Company as well as the Beverly Hills Fire Department worked on repairing the ruptured Beverly Hills gas line.
Just this week, unfortunately, residents of the city of Rosario, in Argentina, were not as lucky when a gas explosion killed at least 10 people and left many others unaccounted for. Apparently, according to Stuff.co.nz, work was being done on the gas system for an apartment building shortly before the gas explosion occurred. That explosion completely destroyed a 10 story apartment building and also caused many gas explosion injuries. Our hearts go out to the victims of this gas explosion, which has particular significance as it was in the home town of Barcelona soccer legend, Lionel Messi.
