UGI outages require long process

COPLAY, Pa. - A chilling nightmare for UGI customers in Lehigh County is over.

UGI has restored natural gas service to about 1,000 of its customers in Coplay borough and North Whitehall Township.

UGI fixed the main problem last night but it took 30 hours to restore service to the affected homes.

The company finished repairs to a regulator station that caused the outage Wednesday night, officials said.

Overnight Wednesday into Thursday UGI said it would make calls to customers about restoring service to each home individually. 

The American Red Cross set up a shelter at the borough hall for residents who had no heat and no place to go overnight.

The approximate areas of the natural gas outage were from the Lehigh River west to 5th Avenue and Hokendauqua Street north to the area of Maple Street.

In Whitehall Township, the outage was in the 3000 to 3400 blocks of North 2nd Street and from the 3100 block of South Front Street through the 3400 block of North Front Street.
