Spring storm leaves many powerless

Spring storm leaves many powerless

WICHITA FALLS, TX (TNN) - Much of Texoma saw winds gust up to 60 miles per hour and heavy rains of up to 3.75 inches in places like Vernon over there weekend.

Oncor Electric officials say they have been working around the clock since the storm began to help those that lost power over the weekend.

They added that total was around 3700 people.

MH construction workers who are currently working on the Kemp-Monroe Phase II drainage project said they came out on their off day to pump water out of their work areas. The muddy soil makes it impossible to get their equipment through the work site. Crews are hoping their efforts will give them a head start for tomorrow morning.

In many neighborhoods throughout Wichita Falls, the storm left downed power lines, broken tree limbs, and some fences.

Oncor Electric Area Manager Gordon Drake asks customers to continue to be patience with them as they work to get the last few outages restored. They say some areas received as much as two inches making those areas a little harder to reach and slowed the restoration process. They hope to have the power fully restored by tonight.
