Gas leak threatens homes in Cordova

Cordova Gas Leak

CORDOVA, Ala. (WIAT) – Several homes on Alexander Circle in Cordova were without power for several hours Saturday while first responders from local fire departments and the EMA worked to install venting tubes along the roadway.

The tubes are a temporary fix for a large collection of natural gas that is building in the area from an underground mine.

CBS42 was there as the tubes were installed thanks to a tip from a viewer who lives in the area. Firefighters tell CBS42 they will return to the area to monitor the gas build up on Sunday and Monday.
