Atmos issues warning about natural gas leaks
Published: April 29,2014
ACROSS MISSISSIPPI — Atmos Energy is asking emergency crews, customers and volunteers involved in tornado cleanup efforts in Mississippi to beware of potential natural gas leaks caused by the storms.
David Gates, president of Atmos Energy Mississippi division, says in a news release that the company is assessing damage from Monday’s storms.
Gates says residents should be careful in moving debris that could disturb buried gas lines.
In Louisville, Gates says Atmos shut off gas service to the Winston Medical Hospital and the clinic. He says gas service was also shut-off to about 300 homes throughout Louisville for safety reasons.
In addition, Atmos crews responded to more than 50 gas leaks in Tupelo and 10 in New Hope. All customer issues have been resolved in Rankin County and Noxapater.
