Potential Reservation Gas Crisis Appears To Ease

January 30, 2014, 11:49 AM

BISMARCK, ND -

Warmer weather has apparently helped ease a potential propane crisis on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in the Dakotas.

With propane gas in short supply and increasingly expensive, the tribe this week set up shelters in two communities for people who can't afford to heat their homes. The Red Cross sent three officials there to help provide food, cots and blankets.

Some people were at the shelters Wednesday, but Red Cross regional disaster program manager Dan Kuecker says no one stayed overnight and no one was at the shelters Thursday morning, when temperatures were in the single digits above zero.

The tribe estimates about 5,000 reservation homes rely on propane. Chairman Dave Archambault II has said if propane prices keep rising, it could put the reservation in dire straits.
