UPDATE: IMPORTANT Information for those living in affected gas leak area

By Rebecca Martin


I have been notified that all people living in the affected area of the gas leak in Kingston MUST BE AVAILABLE to have their gas lines turned off by Central Hudson before the problem can be solved. With 1100 homes, that’s going to take the most time – and it will only take ONE HOME to hold up the entire process.

If you are not home now, please call Central Hudson at 800/527-2714 and speak to a customer agent to give them a contact number.


UPDATE: IMPORTANT information on the gas leak in Kingston

Kingston Citizens –

I just got off the phone with Central Hudson and all home owners in the effected area MUST BE HOME FOR CENTRAL HUDSON TO GET IN TO TURN OFF THEIR GAS LINE. Newer constructions have meters on the outside of their homes – but older homes have meters in their basements.

If they are not able to get into one home THE PROCESS IS DELAYED. Please wait if you can, or call Central Hudson to give them a contact number at 800/527-2714.

Apparently, this very thing happened in Montgomery last month with 600 homes effected. It took over two days to complete the process. In Kingston, approximately 1100 homes are effected.   Let’s cooperate to make this move forward as swiftly as possible.

As mentioned in the last post, there is a warming shelter at the Midtown Rec Center.

If you’re like me, you’ve lost your gas for the next couple of days.

Here is the area effected:


There is emergency shelter at the Midtown Rec Center for those in need. Please make sure to check on our elderly and young families for support. I have also been told that Chiz at Heart Street on West Chestnut Street is in need of space heaters.

Please help in any way that you can.

Thank you.
