Natural gas service is rarely affected by storms. But if your home gets damaged, follow these safety steps:

  • Do not turn off natural gas at the meter. Meters maintain proper line pressure and prevent water from entering pipes if flooding occurs.
  • To cut off natural gas service, turn gas off at each appliance

If you smell natural gas:

  • Leave immediately on foot. Cars, light switches and phones (including mobile phones) could cause a spark.
  • When at a safe location, call 911 and your natural gas provider.
  • If you are a renter, call your landlord as well.
