LORAIN COUNTY, OH (WOIO) –
Columbia Gas crews are nearly finished with shutting off all the gas lines to homes that lost natural gas on Monday night. Approximately 2,200 customers are affected in Elyria, Eaton Township and North Ridgeville.
Once all the meters have been shut down, the entire system will have to be purged, a process that will take several hours. Shutting down the gas has taken longer than expected because some people fled their homes due to the cold so crews had to dig at the curb to shut down the outside supply valve to the homes.
People who leave their houses should leave contact information on the door so that repair crews can contact them.
