St. Paul, MN (KELO AM) - Along with the propane shortages in the area, there is also a concern for natural gas customers.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety is urging residents to keep natural gas meters clear of ice and snow. Vents on the regulators could become blocked if not clear. A blockage could cause a malfunction and create an interruption of service, or the possibility of a leak, fire or explosion.
If the ice cannot be cleared, call the gas company so professionals can clear the vents.
