Two gas leaks that caused evacuations downtown yesterday were located and repaired early this morning by crews from Columbia Gas.  Ruptures in the 8″ cast iron underground natural gas line were discovered near William St at Prince Edward St and near Amelia St at Prince Edward St.  The repairs were completed, and residents and business owners were allowed to return to their homes around 3:30 am today.
