Southcross energy will be shutting down a natural gas pipeline in the Mechanicsburg this morning for maintenance.
The company will vent the line with a controlled release of natural gas. Residents in the area may hear a loud roaring sound when the gas is released.
"This is routine maintenance, but in light of what happened in the area, I wanted residents to be aware," said Jack Willingham, director of the Yazoo County Emergency Management Agency.
This controlled release will take place near Highway 433 and Mechanicsburg Road.
