Update from Tri Nguyen via Twitter: “Beacon Ave S northbound blocked.” Gabe confirms: “Just drove past. Beacon Ave is all closed down.”

Update from KING5Seattle: “2-inch natural gas line break at Beacon Hill light rail station. People in area advised to keep windows shut and stay inside.” Story here.

  1. I tried to go to the Bank of America, couldn’t get to it. A lot of response and road blocks so plan ahead if you need to do business around there. I drove down College St. to get to the BofA in the CD and the gas smell was SUPER strong. Hope they can take care of it quickly.
