Nearly 3,000 customers in Lake Highlands are without power Wednesday as a result of continued power outages caused by severe winter weather.
This a 75% improvement since around noon yesterday.
The Electric Reliability Council of Texas initiated the outages early morning on Monday because of record-breaking electric demand as people try to keep their homes warm. The outages are expected to last until the “weather emergency ends,” according to a news release.
In a Tweet, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins says there has been some “modest improvement” in regaining electricity.
