'Shelter In Place' Gas Leak In Dripping Springs

Hays County officials have ordered the Hays Country Acres subdivision in the 1600 block of East Highway 290 in Dripping Springs to stay in their homes after a contractor punctured a major gas line Wednesday morning.|

A Code Red, emergency notification was sent to all residents in the subdivision around 9:30 a.m. Initially, emergency crews told homeowners to evacuate but then an hour later said they can stay in their homes. According to Hays County, if it is necessary to evacuate anyone, a deputy or fire fighter will go to the location and give the order to evacuate.

US 290 is shutdown in both directions at Hays County Acres Road, which is less than 1 mile east of Ranch Road 12, as crews work to contain the leak. The gas line belongs to Texas Gas Service.

There are no threats to the public but people are being told to stay in their homes until the leak has been repaired.
