CenterPoint Energy completes natural gas service restoration in Ohio


Dayton, Ohio - March 25, 2024 - Following a devastating F3 tornado that severely impacted customers in Lakeview and Russells Point, Ohio, CenterPoint Energy has restored natural gas service to all customers who have provided the company access to perform safety checks and relight pilots.

Customers who received a door hanger and are still without service can call the phone number listed on the door tag. The relighting process requires CenterPoint Energy employees to have access to each location to light pilots and verify it is safe to resume service.

CenterPoint Energy recognizes the significant impact on customers whose homes have been severely damaged or destroyed. The company continues to work closely with local emergency services to provide support and timely updates. Additionally, the CenterPoint Energy Foundation has donated $50,000 to the United Way of Logan County Indian Lake Tornado Relief Fund. The utility remains dedicated to supporting the community throughout the restoration effort.

If you smell natural gas, leave immediately on foot. Once you are safely away from the area, report the possible natural gas leak to 911 and to CenterPoint Energy at 1-800-227-1376.
