An intense line of storms has left more than 100,000 customers without power, including 61,000 in Texas and 39,000 in Louisiana. Widespread damage, including trees down and wires down, is being reported. SWEPCO crews are assessing damage and beginning power restoration.

Estimated times of restoration are not yet available, but initial estimates are that it may take multiple days to restore power. Stay away from downed utility lines and call SWEPCO or 911 immediately. All downed lines should be considered energized and dangerous. Contact SWEPCO at 1-888-218-3919 or online at www.swepco.com.

Outages are still occurring as the storm moves through SWEPCO’s service territory.
