Natural gas is the next resource to go during the brisk winter storm. Texas Gas Service responded to a natural gas outage on E. 12th Street Wednesday night and is warning of other potential outages.

The outage affected over 300 homes that include the neighborhood between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and 12th Street. There is currently not a clear reason on what caused the leak.

Texas Gas Service will be going to each home and business in the area and turning off meters, without notifying residents to expedite the process. The service said that it will likely take a couple of days to restore service. Updates will be posted to the Texas Gas Service's Twitter and Facebook page.

Texas Gas Service serves about 250,000 customers in Austin.
