Thousands Lose Electricity in North Texas Storms
DALLAS (AP) — Storms in North Texas have knocked out power to thousands of homes and businesses.
Dallas-based Oncor (ON'-kor) on Monday reported more than 23,000 customers without electricity. Utility officials say that's down from about 55,000 customers losing power Sunday night during strong winds and lightning. Crews worked overnight to restore service.
The National Weather Service says wind gusts of more than 70 mph were recorded in the Fort Worth area, leading to some downed trees and power lines. Authorities have no reports of major damage or injuries.
Forecasters say the Dallas-Fort Worth area should have highs topping 100 degrees Monday.
