City officials in Jasper, Indiana said Friday that residents could return to 'normal operations' effective immediately after the city's natural gas supply had become stable.

The Jasper Gas Department made the call Friday after monitoring the situation for several days, with improving weather conditions also contributing to the decision.

"More natural gas is now available to us through Tetco and AnR remains restricted, but available," a statement from the city said Friday. "The current weather forecast looks more favorable thus the decision to lift restrictions."

This comes after Jasper Mayor Dean Vonderheide on Tuesday called for the closures of businesses and schools and asked area residents to reduce their thermostats to at least 68 degrees.

The natural gas shortage in the city was largely due to winter storms across Texas that knocked out power and caused natural gas processing plants to shut down, reducing the production and supply of natural gas to several parts of our area.

The City of Jasper is thanking everyone who helped contribute to getting through the shortage.
