Emergency: New Mexico natural gas shutoff for Taos and Las Cruces during record cold as Texas brownouts affect New Mexico
The New Mexico Gas Company issued a press release at noon which said, “Due to rolling black outs in West Texas and other problems, the delivery of natural gas into New Mexico has been impeded. States in the southwest are experiencing similar issues.”
Las Cruces suffered rolling electrical blackouts yesterday and El Paso Electric warned that it could happen again today. The company urged residents to conserve to put less strain on the system.
