SKIPPACK TOWNSHIP, Pa.
A mysterious odor has prompted the evacuation of about 100 homes in Pennsylvania.
About 150 evacuees have taken shelter in Skippack Elementary School. Some residents went to a hospital as a precaution and were released.
Two energy companies operating in the area tell the Philadelphia Inquirer they tested their natural gas systems and determined they aren't the source of the smell.
Crews are investigating.
