LIMA, Ohio (AP) — A natural gas company in western Ohio is asking customers to dial back their usage over the next few days as temperatures approach record lows.

Dominion East Ohio Gas says it's not in danger of running out of natural gas but adds that it's taking the precaution to prevent its distribution system from being overwhelmed.

The company sent out automated calls Sunday to 57,000 customers in nine counties in western and northwestern Ohio.

The warnings to conserve natural gas alarmed some people who called the company to ask if their natural gas supply could run out.

A Dominion spokeswoman says she thinks it's the first time the company has asked customers to watch their usage.

She says 10 of their largest industrial customers have agreed to cut back.
