Hundreds of homes and businesses in Kent are without gas after the pipe network became flooded with water.
A spokeswoman for Southern Gas Networks said about 800 homes in the Halstead area of Sevenoaks were affected.
She said engineers were working to fix the problem but could not say when the gas would be turned back on.
The company said it would supply electric appliances for cooking and heating to people with special needs.
An emergency centre has been set up at Knockholt Village Hall in Main Road.
“It is very important that you do not try to use gas while our engineers are dealing with this emergency,” the spokeswoman added.
