A&M-Texarkana reopens after gas leak spurred evacuation

TEXARKANA, TX (KSLA) - Texas A&M University's Texarkana campus was evacuated as a precaution Monday because of a natural gas leak at one of its construction sites.

A statement the school released at 1 p.m. said CenterPoint Energy was working with campus officials to remedy the situation.

The campus has since reopened.

The leak was caused when a piece of construction equipment struck a natural gas line.
