WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Waterloo Expo High School evacuated briefly due to a gas odor Wednesday.

Waterloo School spokesperson Tara Thomas says 300 students and 70 staff members evacuated the school and took shelter in Highland Elementary while MidAmerican officials and police investigated the smell.

Thomas says officials turned off the gas in the school and determined the smell was coming from a source outside the school.

Students were only at Highland Elementary for half an hour before MidAmerican and police allowed everyone back inside the school.
