Homes Evacuated in Latonia Near Caroline Underpass

Multiple homes in Latonia have been evacuated after Covington Police and Fire respond to the Caroline Underpass.

A water main has broken, a gas line was possibly damaged, and the retaining wall may be collapsing. 

Emergency crews responded at around 5:30 a.m.

As of 8:15 a.m., gas is reportedly still leaking in the area and will require the sidewalks to be dug up in order to shut off the gas.

A TANK bus is on site to offer warmth to any family displaced by the evacuation/

The Caroline Underpass has been closed to through traffic since September as the street undergoes a reconstruction.

Photographer and RCN contributor Katie Woodring captured the scene in the photos below.
