KINDER, LA (KPLC) - The Town of Kinder will begin turning all of the gas meters back on within the hour, according to Town Clerk Traci Fontenot.

Last night's storms caused a natural gas leak, forcing officials to turn off gas.

Fontenot said, " It will still take several hours to get all 700 meters turned back on. The process will go quicker if the citizens are home - if no one is home we will not be able to turn gas on."
