Public officials held a press conference in Lawrence to give an update on the gas restoration effort in the Merrimack Valley following the Sept. 13 explosions.

Gov. Charlie Baker said the restoration efforts have reached an important milestone by restoring gas to 98 percent of the thousands of homes and businesses that lost service, but the mission has not yet been completed.

"Our administration and these municipal leaders will continue to hold Columbia Gas accountable for this mission until the folks are made whole and returned to normalcy." But, he said, "we've come a long way."
