LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - A week after 82nd Street was shutdown due to a gas leak, residents in South Lubbock were evacuated after another cut gas line was reported near the South Loop and Ave. U.

Crews responded to the gas leak on the north side of the loop late Wednesday morning and began evacuations just before 10 a.m. The leak has since been contained and residents have returned to their homes, LFR confirmed. The cause of the gas leak is unknown at this time.

While Lubbock has seen an increase in cut gas lines, ATMOS continues to reiterate the importance of knowing what’s below and calling 811 at least 48 to 72 hours before digging whether you are a contractor or homeowner.
