All of the Manitobans who lost natural gas service after a pipeline exploded on Saturday will have their service back on by the end of the day today.

Manitoba Hydro, in a statement, said about 95 per cent of the 3,600 customers who lost service have now been visited by a utility worker, with the rest expected to be completed this afternoon.
