    PALM BEACH COUNTY, Florida – A powerful gas line explosion closed all north and south lanes of the Florida toll highway at Lake Worth Road on Thursday

    New video from a WFLX viewer showed the line suddenly exploding next to the freeway just before 10 a.m., throwing thick smoke across the sky

    The Palm Beach County Fire Department said residents within half a mile of the blast were required to shelter in place inside their homes until further notice, calling that of “failure of the main gas line”

    An exclusive Chopper 5 video showed smoke from the broken gas line running parallel to the freeway, pieces of cement and concrete torn from a wall next to Turnpike, and debris and dirt scattered on the road

    A video from a WFLX viewer showed brown smoke billowing into the sky a few feet from the highway

    Palm Beach County Fire Department, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Department of Transportation all responded to the scene

    The emergency causes significant delays in the north and south lanes of the toll motorway, which are all closed Traffic is safeguarded for several kilometers

    Northbound drivers are advised to exit at Boynton Beach Boulevard, and southbound drivers are encouraged to proceed to Okeechobee Boulevard to avoid delays
