An apparent gas leak Friday morning at East Ridge High School in Woodbury has canceled classes, according to the school district. At about 11:25 a.m., the school district said the high school was evacuated due to a natural gas odor permeating the building. Students were evacuated to nearby Bielenberg Sports Complex, or to Five Oaks Church.
Authorities said the Century Plaza building in downtown Minneapolis had to be closed Friday after an unpleasant odor from the sewer system swept through the building.
Crews were investigating what may have caused a suspicious odor to permeate part of the University of Minnesota campus Thursday.
