Crews making progress restoring natural gas to Buffalo, MN

Crews making progress restoring natural gas to Buffalo, MN Associated Press BUFFALO, Minn. - CenterPoint Energy plans a big push today to finish restoring natural gas service to the central Minnesota town of Buffalo.
As of midnight, crews had restored service to 40 percent to 50 percent of the affected 55-hundred homes and businesses.
CenterPoint spokesman Rolf Lund says crews continued to make progress during the night -- and hope to have power fully restored by the end of the day.
Lunds says probably over 100 workers will be on duty today, restoring service that was shut off yesterday after a problem developed during maintenance.
Lows overnight dipped into the mid-30s in Buffalo. But no one used the shelter that the American Red Cross staffed at the Buffalo Community Middle School.
Buffalo Police Chief Mitch Weinzetl (WYNE'-zet-uhl) says the temperature drops weren't dramatic enough to force people out of their homes.
Schools will hold classes as usual today.

Seems to be the wrong day to be named "Buffalo".

At least if the electric is on, they have portable heaters. Toaster, clothes dryer if electric, hair dryer, and so on.

And how many fires are started a winter by people using clothes dryers, hairdryers, or ovens as a temporary furnace?
