This morning the circulation of people and vehicles in via Paladini, in Caltanissetta, where starting yesterday afternoon a large gas leak kept the firefighters, police, 118 and the Red Cross busy for hours. Last night the gas company, once it identified the exact point from which the leak had started, dug for several meters to create a new maneuvering chamber to interrupt the flow. This morning the works have been completed and the area of the works has been circumscribed.
Traffic resumed regularly. Until midnight the mayor Roberto Gambino also remained present to follow the works and constantly inform the citizens of what was happening. The first citizen confirms that a worker would have been the cause of the escape during the works of Enel. «With a sort of horizontal excavator – explained Gambino – the pipeline was erroneously broken. Fortunately, the point where it broke was right next to the hole made during the works and therefore the gas escaped without being channeled. In that case the risk of explosions would have been greater ». The intervention began yesterday afternoon at 6.30 pm and ended this morning. In a large part of the city you could smell the acrid smell of gas and the Nissenians followed with apprehension the entire evolution of the story. Firefighters threw water spray for hours to avoid gas concentrations in the atmosphere..
