Smell Rotten Eggs? Make The Calls

Safety first  – CenterPoint Energy is offering these safety tips – check your furnace vents and filters.  Use a space heater with an automatic shut-off feature, and keep children, pets and all items at least three feet away.  Check your carbon monoxide (CO) and smoke alarms. And immediately report a suspected natural gas leak. If you smell the “rotten egg” odor of natural gas, immediately leave on foot, go to a safe location and call both 911 and CenterPoint Energy at 800-227-1376. Don’t use electric switches/outlets, phones (including cell phones), drive or start a car inside or in close proximity to the location or do anything that could cause a spark.


INDOT urges motorists to closely monitor forecasts and adjust holiday travel to avoid higher-impact timeframes during the storm, which are anticipated through Friday morning in most areas.
