National Grid advances in Newport and Middletown.

From Saturday afternoon, some National Grid natural gas customers have hot and hot water for the first time in almost six days.

"I'm extremely happy, everything is normal for me," Timothy said. "It is great to have functioning functional heat in the middle of winter."

Saturday afternoon and night, hundreds of crew members have gone to the door, stopping in places with people who are at home, diverting devices and restoring natural gas. [19659004] "I just came home and the heat worked again, so everything was a minor process," Kesson said. "They did a really good job, I just hope they will cover a little bit of my electric bill because of the amount of room heaters we might have used for sure it went up."

Over the last few days, several residents have stayed in hotels.

National Grid has released coupons and the company said it would repay customers' expenses.

"It's been fun," Brian Kelley said. "It's been a cool experience I think you could say."

Kelley has been without heat all week.

He said he and his friends have lived together in hotels.

"Many of the people in Newport are not going to experience things tourists do," Kelley said. "It has been cool to experience Newport on the other hand."

His American Bistro is one of many companies that closed due to gas interruptions.

Signs that read "Closed For Business" have come down from the restaurant's doors.

Throughout the week, the heated floor and room heaters helped heat the restaurant and keep the pipes from freezing while the staff waited hopefully at home.

"It has been very difficult not to give them (staff) answers," said the owner Joann Carlson. "These kids are working their stories out for me, they are family."

Starting Sunday evening business on Jo's will resume. The same applies to other companies visited by crews.

"We're so happy," Carlson said. "They will be back at work, they are glad we just called them all."

National Grid Representatives said over the next few days that they will go door to door to restore gas and turn on each device.

They ask affected residents to let the lights stand to signal that they are at home.

Crews will not access if a person (18 or older) is not at home on arrival. It will still take several days before everything is back to normal.

Newport Schools will be open again Monday.
