Service also restored in Tyrone and Barrington
BATH – Natural gas service has been restored to more than 444 services in the Town of Wayne, Tyrone (Schuyler County) and Barrington (Yates County) with the remaining services expected to be restored by NYSEG crews throughout the day and evening according to the Steuben County Office of Emergency Services.
“We ask any NYSEG customers who do not have gas service restored to contact NYSEG at 1-800- 572-1121,” said Ken Forenz, County OES Deputy Director. “If anyone smells gas or suspects a leak, leave the area and call 911.”
Over 600 customers were left without gas service after a distribution system interruption occurred early Monday morning. NYSEG crews pressurized the system late Monday evening, and started going door to door to relight gas appliances.
The Warming Shelter setup by the American Red Cross at the Tyrone Fire Department on Monday afternoon for displaced gas customers will close at 2 p.m. Tuesday officials said.
