 People are back in their homes tonight after a gas leak forced them out.  More than 30 homes were evacuated at winding lane and Arcadia Drive in Champaign. It happened around 4 Wednesday.  Construction crews hit a gas line while digging. The leak has been shut off and people were given the "all clear" about 2 hours later.

The broken line meant re-routing service to some homes.  At last check about 5 were still without gas.  Ameren is working on it.
