Gas services has been restored to most of Haynesville, according to CenterPoint Energy officials Wednesday morning. The outage happened Monday evening, when over 1,000 homes and businesses lost gas service, and with it, the ability to cook or heat their homes.
It was especially bad timing for Killgore's Pharmacy, which was decked out for the holiday. "Normally we have large crowds for Valentine's Day and because there's no school, we have no deliveries to the schools and a lot of people are going elsewhere, to Shreveport or other places because they're cold. They want to go someplace that's warm so that's been sort of disappointing for us," said Beverlee Killgore.
CenterPoint crews are continuing to go meter to meter to restore gas service to the remaining homes.
