Natural Gas Leak Closes Part of Hubbell Avenue
DES MOINES, Iowa – A natural gas leak on Des Moines’ east side has closed off a portion of Hubbell Avenue. MidAmerican Energy says a contractor working for the city was replacing a gas line in the area of E. 37th and Hubbell when their crew hit a natural gas line around 10:00 a.m. MidAmerican is on the scene to make repairs and expects the fix to take about 3 ½ hours.
