TULSA, Okla. — Even though the extreme cold of winter storm 2021 seems to be gone, many residents in north Tulsa have been without gas since Friday.
Residents like art teacher Joan Wright said the temperature outside on Monday was warmer than inside her home.
Wright said, "We have good weather. Why is this happening?"
She said most of her daily necessities rely on having gas inside her home.
“I can’t cook, I can’t clean and I can’t take a hot shower," Wright said.
Wright said she has had to send her two sons to a friend's house so they could bathe. However, she can't leave home if an Oklahoma Natural Gas employee needs to get inside her house.
Cherokee Ballard with ONG said they are aware of the issue.
“A third party did some damage to our line. As a result, we had water in our gas lines,” Ballard said.
ONG crews were working in the area throughout the day on Monday to try to get service restored.
