Gas Line Rupture Causes Hominy Outages
HOMINY, Oklahoma - Some customers in Hominy will be without gas for an unknown amount of time after a gas line rupture, the City of Hominy said Friday.
The City initially was told the entire town would lose service, but that does not now appear to be the case, according to City Manager Jimmie Ratliff.
Ratliff said around 9:30 a.m., the City was informed by Centerpoint Energy that a line west of town had blown out. No one was hurt, but there was some damage to pastureland, he said.
Centerpoint said at first that they would have to shut down the entire city's gas supply, but now they have stabilized the line somewhat, Ratliff said. Now they believe only high-use customers will be affected, such as businesses.
The City will continue to update residents on their Facebook page.
They said it is safe to use gas appliances.
