    A PG&E spokesperson says planned gas work in Morgan Hill caused a natural gas smell to permeate the air Thursday, responding to complaints from Gilroy residents.

    Residents reported Thursday and Friday, via social media, what smelled like a gas leak near the Gilroy Premium Outlets on Leavesley Road and further south on 10th Street.

    PG&E says the smell was the result of crews venting natural gas Dec. 3 during late morning and afternoon hours at the intersection of Diana Avenue and Hill Road in Morgan Hill.

    According to PG&E, the odor dissipated into the atmosphere and was not harmful. Anyone with additional concerns can contact the utility directly at (800) 743-5000.

    No additional work is scheduled Friday in Morgan Hill or Gilroy.
