The explosion broke the windows of nearby houses and caused other minor damage. Mill said victims who lost their homes have been contacting the American Red Cross for help.
CenterPoint personnel can also come out to control the leak. They said the leak occurred in the two-inch pipe, so they must gradually work hard to close it.
Meyer said: “If you smell gas, go out quickly.” “Do not turn on any light switches. Do not flick any flashlights.”
