WOODHULL (WENY) -- At least 200 people were evacuated from Woodhull on Friday night after a gas head broke, creating back pressure within the lines. There were no injuries reported, and people were allowed to go back in their homes a little after 11 o'clock.
Authorities went door-to-door telling people to evacuate to both Jasper and Addison high schools. Police closed down Rte. 417 between County Roads 81 and 101. Authorities shut down the Woodhull area for a two mile radius. Emergency crews from Gang Mills, Addison, Osceola, Tuscarora, Trumansburg and NYSP were on scene to assist with the evacuations and diverting traffic.
