Loveland, Ohio – Duke crews told Loveland Magazine at noon that they have not yet located the exact location of a natural gas leak that caused residents and business owners to evacuate around 10 AM this morning.
At this time some are still being told to “shelter in place” and some are still not allowed back inside structures. Gas was detected inside some structures and Duke is currently monitoring sanitary and storm sewers, and basements for gas.
Crews are currently digging and using jackhammers at the West Loveland Avenue and Loveland Madeira Road intersection.
West Loveland Avenue is closed at Wall Street and further west up the hill past the Loveland Dairy Mart.
Loveland Madeira Road is closed at Main and at Elm.
No injuries have been reported.
