Smell natural gas in your neighborhood? Here's what's causing it

Neighbors are worried about a gas odor in several counties but Atlanta Gas Light is insisting there is nothing to worry about.

On Monday afternoon, the company released a statement saying Williams Energy Company is conducting a controlled release of natural gas in the north portion of the county. They said the odor is expected to dissipate over the next 24 hours.

The odor is present in Douglas, Paulding and Cobb counties.
