We last posted an article about a water well on Locust Street in Quitman which has natural gas spewing out of it. Since that time, some residents in that neighborhood have complained of headaches and feeling sick all the time. A few residents have filmed the water well bubbling and spewing gas out of the abandoned water well. Residents in the Locust Street neighborhood have been voicing their fears of gas migration in the area. One woman actually passed out in her own home and has constant headaches. Fox says the gas well is scheduled to be capped off tomorrow. This neighbor is very frightened that the gas well being capped off will cause more gas to migrate into their home. The family of the house that exploded escaped harm, but the house was charred to its bare frame. Fox 16 reports.
