Residents in Suffolk County are having a much calmer morning after Saturday’s emergency wake-up call. A leak in a 30,000-gallon underground propane tank led to the evacuation of about 900 homes in Shirley.
Nassau County police said the gas apparently leaked from a first-floor deli in Garden City Park into the apartments upstairs.
The temporary building on the north lawn of the complex was evacuated Tuesday, but staff and diplomats were allowed to return a few minutes later.
The pounding rain wreaked havoc around the tri-state area last night and, as CBS 2’s Mark Morgan reports, Nassau County was hit especially hard.
