Friday morning storms slow power restoration efforts in North Texas, Oncor says

As of Friday afternoon, Oncor says more than 50,000 customers are still without power in North and Central Texas.

DALLAS — Following Tuesday morning’s storms in North Texas, hundreds of thousands were left without power. 

Now, three days later, the restoration process is continuously being slowed down due to more storms bringing heavy rains, winds and flooding Thursday and early Friday, Oncor says. 

According to Oncor, the majority of customers should have their power restored by Friday evening. However, work will still be underway in the hardest hit regions of North Dallas, East Dallas and Mesquite. 

Oncor says around 12,000 crew members are working around the clock to restore power. 

According to Oncor, they have effectively restored power to more the 600,000 customers following Tuesday’s storms and around 50,000 remain. 

“While significant progress has been made, Oncor recognizes the frustration and challenges customers face without power, especially after such devastating storms and we appreciate their patience,” Oncor stated in a news release on Friday.
