Columbia Gas Restores Majority Of Heat Outages


Around 1,000 people in Crooksville lost heat Wednesday due to an issue with Columbia Gas.

According to the company, the disruption occurred due to a mechanical failure Wednesday morning.

The company, along with the Red Cross, set up a warming shelter at the New Lexington High School.

As of 10:45 p.m., Columbia Gas restored heat to 85% of the impacted homes.

More than 80 crews in Crooksville were working on service restoration.  

Officials were also going door-to-door to check on residents. They asked people without heat to leave porch or outside lights on so Columbia Gas crews would visit their home.
