AKRON, Ohio (WJW) – Residents of downtown Akron with natural gas could experience power outages, Dominion Energy said in a release.
The pipes are being worked on at this time, but the energy company said that it can last until Sunday before the service is resumed. Water has reportedly entered some of the lines, which has caused the natural gas service to falter.
Natural gas is used in a number of ways in homes and buildings, including lighting stoves and heating rooms.
As substitutes fall Saturday night, a warm-up center has been set up at the Mason Community Learning Center at 700 East Exchange Street.
Those who may be without heat are also reminded to try to keep the pipes warm. Find out more about doing it here.
Those affected by the power outage must have received an automated message from the energy company.
