Handful Of Texans Still Without Electricity

DALLAS (AP) — A handful of Texans had Thanksgiving dinner out as dozens of homes remained without electric power four days after a winter storm.

The winter storm last weekend left thousands in the dark. Most electric power customers had their lights back on days ago, but scattered customers still lacked the juice Thursday to heat their homes or roast their turkeys.

AEP Texasreports about 140 customers remained in the dark Thursday, including 105 around McCamey. Sharyland Utilities reports 200 residential and 1,200 commercial and industrial customers were still without power in the eastern Permian Basin. Oncor reports 158 customers remained without power in West Texas, along with almost 200 in North Texas.
