There are new developments Friday regarding the deadly natural gas explosion in Ewing Township. The family of Linda Cerritelli, who was killed, has now filed a civil lawsuit against both PSE&G and contractor Henkels & McCoy.
The problem was traced to a feedwater pump, which was being checked out.
Steinmann also says the township is now certain neither PSEG nor their contractor Henkels and McCoy reported the gas leak to 911 prior to the explosion.
Officials are advising area residents that PSE&G will repair its natural gas lines on Haddonfield Road in Cherry Hill over the next several weeks.
