Between Sulphur Springs and Dike, some 1,075 were without electrical power. Smaller numbers in the Martin Springs area and Como area were without power.

Some of the homes in Martin Springs Community reported having been without electricity prior to the storm. One caller told KSST that they had been without power beginning at 5:05 p.m. Many were anxious for power to be restored but due to outages in Hopkins, Hunt, and Rockwall Counties progress will be slowed.

In the Brashear area County Roads 1119, 1110, 1117, 1112, 1115 are closed. A tree was on fire near a barn in the Brashear area.
