Gas smell in Canarsie due to gas main work

Dozens of Brooklyn residents have called 911 reporting a strong smell of gas in the air Thursday night.

Apparently National Grid had a planned maintenance project to remove an old gas main and it's created the smell of gas throughout the borough.

The FDNY says people should continue to call 911 if there's a natural gas emergency.

The work is happening in Canarsie, Brooklyn at Seaview Avenue and Paerdegat Avenue North.
