Petrolia ISD closed on Wednesday

PETROLIA, TX (KAUZ) - Officials with Petrolia ISD said all schools will be closed Wednesday due to the power outage.

Due to storms in the area Monday night, power has been knocked out in several small North Texas towns.

Residents in Petrolia, Byers, and Dean could be without power for days.

According to the Texas-New Mexico Power Company, many poles are down in hard-to-reach areas.

A call to the company's toll-free number led to an automated message that says residents in those areas may not have power until Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.

School was canceled for Tuesday.
