CenterPoint Energy is responding to a natural gas outage in Vinton,  impacting more than 700 customers. The company is further investigating the cause of the outage.  

 “Safety is our top core value, and we will keep it at the forefront as we work to restore natural gas service to impacted residential and business customers as safely and quickly as possible,” said Bo Murphy, vice president of Louisiana and Mississippi Natural Gas. “We have safely started the process of turning off each customer’s natural gas meter. Additional crews from nearby areas will help expedite the restoration process.” 

This evening, CenterPoint Energy technicians will begin visiting customers to restore service. Technicians will need access to enter customer homes and businesses to perform safety checks and re-establish service to the homes. If technicians visit a home and no one over the age of 18 is present, a door hanger with details on how to contact the company to schedule a relight will be left on the door. Crews and contractors wear identification badges and will show them to you upon request.
