Apparently the blast happened a few hours ago (though the news is already all over the world). I just called my sister in Armenia. She said they still have gas. Armenia is apparently using its emergency gas reserves.

Georgia and Armenia are struggling with a sudden loss of natural gas supplies and reduced electricity as temperatures plummet.
Explosions disrupted pipelines from southern Russia to Georgia, which relies on its bigger neighbour for supplies. Armenia also uses Russian gas, delivered via Georgia.
Armenia was using its emergency gas reserves, AP reported.
