WILLIMANTIC, CT (WFSB) -

Eversource officials told Eyewitness News service has been restored to all but 30 customers in Willimantic after a major gas issue.

The problem was caused on Thursday afternoon when a contractor pumped air into a line on Jackson Street.

Eversource said they need to get into each residence to fix the problem and the remaining homes have not answered their doors when technicians stopped-by.

If you're still having an issue with your gas service, contact Eversource. You can call the Eversource customer service number at 1-800-989-0900.
