Service was gradually being restored in the community but the restoration process was expected to continue through the evening. The utility said it was installing a bypass around a section of gas supply line that was blocked. All gas services in Stonewall were turned off at the gas meter during the morning and the meters had to be turned on and gas appliances re-lit by Manitoba Hydro staff. The company estimated that 80% of the 1,200 affected customers would have their gas service restored by 4 p.m. and work will continue until all services are returned to normal.
