Undeniably bad situation could be worse
It’s a bit of an understatement to say the evacuation of Milford on Thursday following an excavation incident that sparked a gas line explosion was a bad thing.
Hundreds of people were pushed from their homes and told they could not return for at least a day.
Schoolchildren were pulled from Milford ISD classrooms with the same warning. The situation demanded the kind of caution that would dictate a long and largely uncomfortable waiting period.
