POTOMAC, Md. (AP) Up to a dozen homes are being evacuated because of a gas leak in Potomac.

Capt. Oscar Garcia of the Montgomery County fire department says workers damaged a 2-inch gas line on Hayworth Drive in Potomac. He says authorities are checking between six and 12 homes on Hayworth Drive and Beechknoll Lane for gas, and residents who are home are being evacuated.

Officials are also rerouting traffic. School buses are also affected because of the time of day.
