Mississippi city being evacuated after main gas pipeline hit

We are currently on scene at MS HWY 43 and Stephens Cemetery Road in Silver Creek. The main line for a pipeline has been hit. We are closing Hwy 43 down north of us at Benson Road and re-routing
Traffic there and south of our location. We urge all residents that live within a one mile radius to evacuate immediately. There has been no fire or explosion and this is a precautionary measure. Also, there will be no need to ride through and sight see, as the road way will be closed off shortly and traffic the-routed.

UPDATE: We are now extending the evacuation to the entire Silver Creek City Limits
