If you were to be evacuated how would you find out?

Who would tell you and how? The main gas line right behind our house blew up and has been shooting gas into the air for hours. My eyes are starting to sting!

  • If that was the case, I would NOT wait for someone to tell me to leave. Sorry OP, but I find this post hard to believe.

  • local television news, the local papers website, call the police department, listening to a local rado station, I get text messages to my phone when something like that goes on here

  • I live almost directly across the street from the fire dept / Very annoying when they get called out. But very conveniant when something happens. They know us and that we have kids so they come over and check on us when something big is happening. For instance we had a water line bust and the city had enough water in tanks for the weekend, but they came to let us know in case no one had.

  • Well, did YOU call the Fire Department or The Gas Company???? YET! If the odor is coming into your home with the windows closed then I would leave for a while after I made those calls.

  • If your to be evacuated chances are it will be all over the TV and new's and the national guard will be knocking on your door to tell you to get out, or write your name and info in permanent marker on your body so they can easily identify your body after the disaster. Thats what they do in Florida during the hurricane's.
