UPDATED: All Evacuated Residents in Monroe County Back Home



All the families displaced by the Monroe County gas leak can return home after crews had been busy trying to cap a leaking well head all day Tuesday.

These families have been forced out of their homes for over a week now, but tonight they are back, “I haven’t had it that bad, a lot of people had it worse that had kids and so on, you know. I just hope it all gets straightened out here real quick, especially for the other people, I don’t have no real big problems, said Charles Clark, one of the residents forced to evacuate.

Some of the evacuees said Triad Hunter had put them up in hotels in Marietta, while the issue was on going. Some had been commuting back and forth between Marietta and Hannibal to take their kids to school. Most are happy they were able to return home for Christmas.
