NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – Two New Haven schools were dismissed early on Thursday following conditions of storm Ida.

The district said that the Engineering and Science University Magnet School (ESUMS) and the New Haven Adult Continuing Education Center were both impacted.

Officials said a heavy gas-like smell interrupted classes at ESUMS. The building was evacuated and students were dismissed early out of an abundance of caution. Emergency crews responded to the scene and quickly determined the smell was not methane or natural gas.

It was determined that air from the drains in the laboratories had been forced out by water pressure caused by the heavy rain.

Flooding at the Adult Education Center caused the closure of the building. Students attending classes were dismissed early.
