BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Columbia Gas State of Emergency is over in the Merrimack Valley.
The governor is lifting the State of Emergency in Lawrence, Andover, and North Andover imposed two years ago, after the Columbia Gas explosions. Those explosions left houses destroyed, homes without heat, businesses closed and a teenager dead.
Senator Barry Finegold said work isn't done in the area, however.
These communities are still not State of Emergency free; the governor declared a statewide COVID-19 State of Emergency in March that is still in effect.
