PARMA, Ohio — A gas main that ruptured on Wednesday temporarily displaced some Parma residents.

The break also prompted the closure of Snow Road between West 33rd Street and State Road in both directions.

Around 10:30 p.m. the road was reopened and people were allowed back into their homes.

During the displacement, St. Francis Church was made available to those with nowhere to go.
