LA Students Don't Have Snow Days, But They Have Gas Leaks
For students who didn't prepare well enough for today's standardized tests, this morning's gas leak in Santa Ana might have been the answer to their frantic, early-morning prayers. KNBC reports that a backhoe operator severed a natural gas line this morning, forcing Century High School to hold students in classrooms. By noon, the students -- who were in the middle of taking exams -- were evacuated, and the school was temporarily closed down. The leak was stopped shortly thereafter.
Students were sent home on foot, or were bussed to nearby to Villa Fundamental Intermediate School, where they could wait for rides.
