A gas leak from a 30,000-gallon delivery tank in a suburban shopping plaza on Long Island was fixed around 3 p.m. on Saturday. The leak had been discovered around 1:00 a.m. by the delivery driver, and residents were told to evacuate shortly thereafter, according to Michael Meath, a spokesman for the New York Propane Gas Association. Propane levels were noted to be very low by 10 p.m., and residents were able to return to their homes, said Dan Aug, the spokesman for Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy. No injuries or medical problems related to the gas leak were reported.
