DAVENPORT (AP) — Classes have resumed at three Davenport schools after a brief evacuation because of a natural gas smell.
The Quad City-Times reported 1,700 students and staff were evacuated for about 20 minutes Monday morning at North High School, Harrison Elementary School and Kimberly Center.
District spokeswoman Dawn Saul says the district received calls about a strong odor from eight schools about 10 a.m., saying the area affected was widespread.
