DFW weather: Severe storms knock out power for many in North Texas

Utility crews are working to restore power to thousands of North Texans affected by Thursday’s severe weather.

At the height of the storm, there were 200,000 customers in the dark across North Texas. 

But crews made significant progress overnight and the number of outages is decreasing by the hour.

Tarrant County has the most outages with about 18,000 as of noon Friday. Dallas County has more than 16,000.

Oncor made extra resources available Thursday in anticipation of possible tornadic activity but said flooding or other challenges could cause delays.

"We appreciate your patience as we work as quickly and safely as possible to restore power," the company said on its website.
