Work continues on gas outage in Kanawha County

Gas service in Kanawha County has been restored to 905 people, as crews work to clear water from 46 miles of pipeline after a water main break left them flooded.

It has been six days since Governor Justice declared a state of emergency, as people in the affected area have been without gas.

It has prompted schools to close and has forced people to pursue alternative ways of heating their homes.

In his briefing today, Justice said that work is ongoing.

“We are very thankful that the weather didn’t get terribly harsh. We want to get the last 10% of those fully restored and back on,” Justice said. “We thank all the folks that are pulling the rope and making it happen.”
