Thunderstorm Leaves Over 2,000 in Area Without Electrical Power Tuesday Evening

Just under 2,000 FEC customers and over 500 Oncor customers in the TXU service area were without power Tuesday evening when a thunderstorm blew through central Hopkins County moving Southwest at 25 mph. Lightning and heavy rains accompanied the fast moving storm. Wind at 50-55 mph was possible and some hail was reported in the Dike area.

A significant weather advisory was issued by the National Weather Service at 7:03 p.m. and extended until 7:30 p.m. and then 8 p.m. as the storm did not decrease in intensity as it moved across the Lake Fork area near Yantis.

Oncor and FEC customers expected power to be restored between 9:30 and 10:50 p.m.
