TULSA, Okla. — North Tulsa residents are keeping warm tonight after a night without gas to heat their homes.

On Tuesday evening, Oklahoma Natural Gas had multiple crews working to fix the issue near 36th Street North and Hartford.

Leah Harper with Oklahoma Natural Gas said 273 customer were affected by the outage. By 2 p.m. Wednesday, 176 customer had gas service turned back on.

Harper said if you are still without gas, expect a knock at your door.

"In many cases, we do need to go inside the residence to restore natural gas to those customers," he said. "So, we want to make sure people are home. We want to make sure people are safe first and foremost. So, we will go knocking on doors to make sure we can come in and restore that service.”

Duane Jones said he first noticed the temperature in his house dropping around 5:30 p.m. on Monday.

"My wife decided she was gonna go cook dinner, but we noticed it was all cold air coming out of the heater. And so, she went in the kitchen and got ready to turn on the stove and no gas," Jones said.

Jones said his temperature inside his home dropped from 71 to 56 in just a few hours. He's had three heart attacks, and he said the cold temperatures could affect his health.

By 5 p.m. on Wednesday, crews were wrapping up the last of the their service calls.

Any customer still without gas should call customer service at 1-800-664-5463. Updates will also be posted on Oklahoma Natural Gas Facebook page.
