Speaking with XCEL Energy they say the natural gas supply is still at a very delicate balance. The current supply is believed to be able to meet the areas heating needs if residents continue to practice conservation by turning home heating thermostats down to 60 degrees and not using other natural gas appliances.
There had been hope that a supply line repair in Canada would have been completed today however it appears that will not be the case. XCEL has staff monitoring gas pressures throughout the FM area and will react to problems as they develop. An unknown for the sustainability of the natural gas system is how the predicted drop in temperature tonight will affect demand.
People are strongly urged to continue to limit their use of natural gas and stay tuned to local media and look to www.xcelenergy.com for the latest information.
