A building company near Charlotte, NC was digging yesterday when it hit a gas line. The gas main spewed out clouds of gas, causing local businesses to be evacuated. Dig safe, or dig sorry. The gas main leak was only 4 inches, but it caused a gas cloud so big that a helicopter overhead could smell the gas from above.
