This from the City of Bend, at 11:40 Wednesday morning:

"The Bend Fire Department is on the scene of a Cascade Natural Gas gas line leak between Florida and Delaware avenues, near Wall Street, just south of downtown.

One residential block has been evacuated between Wall and Broadway and Delaware and Florida.

Roads closed: Florida and Delaware between Bond and Broadway streets. Wall Street is closed south of Georgia Avenue, near Florida Avenue.

Please avoid the area.

Power is expected to be cut off which would affect up to 1,000 Pacific Power customers.

It could take a couple of hours to isolate the leak and resolve the problem."

With the Source offices positioned not far away, on Georgia and Bond, we evacuated this morning, but were able to return to our building around 12:30 pm—though not before smelling heavy gas fumes both inside and outside our offices.
