Strawn, Tx — The water treatment plant is slowly starting to catch up. Our storage is at about 50% capacity at this time. We have turned off service to several customers this morning as they discovered their pipes were burst due to the cold weather. Please keep checking around your property. Double-check your outside faucets as they thaw.
We are forecast to reach 31 degrees this afternoon. That may be warm enough with the sun to thaw out faucets. Atmos Energy has posted that customer outages are still possible. If we lose gas service in the area, it may not be restored for several days. Gas technicians will be required to go to each residence before service is restored.
Rolling blackouts are still a possibility. We have one more night of extreme cold. Please be prepared.
