Public safety workers along with crews from Columbia Gas are going house-to-house in the cities of Lawrence, North Andover and Andover today following Thursday's shocking series of gas explosions and fires that forced the evacuation of thousands of residents, injured dozens, and left one 18-year-old man dead.

The cause of the catastrophe remains under investigation.

All public schools and many businesses in the all three communities are closed today. Officials are asking for patience, as they warn that it will take time to make sure it's safe for people to return home.
