VIRGINIA BEACH -- Crews responded to two separate gas leaks in Virginia Beach Thursday afternoon.

Laskin Road was down to one westbound lane as Virginia Natural Gas worked to fix an eight-inch line. Around 3 p.m., officials said they expected the lanes to be blocked for 'quite a bit longer' as crews worked to bring in bigger digging equipment.

Also, three apartments were evacuated on Elon Drive as VNG worked to repair a gas leak in that area.

No further information was immediately available.
