Garland homes could be without power for days

- Some people in North Texas could be without power until Friday because of damaged utility poles.

More than 300 homes and businesses in southeast Garland lost power after a storm blew through the area Sunday night.

Officials said high winds snapped a pole that carries electricity to Wynn Joyce Road. The weight of that first pole brought down dozens more, kind of like a domino effect.

Crews are now working around the clock to replace a total of 18 poles. Several have already been replaced.

However, the city-owned Garland Power and Light said it could be Friday before all the lights come back on.
