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.
