Power Situation

TXU crews are working steadily around the clock to continue restoring power to the thousands of local customers affected by the storm.

Power is slowly coming back. District manager Bob Brown says this afternoon was the first time TXU has been able to operate at full production. He says over 700 extra workers are here to help. The City of Diboll, which has been completely without power, should have most of its electricity restored by tonight. Brown says about 51 thousand customers in East Texas were affected. He hopes to decrease that number to around 30 thousand by tonight and be back to fully restored power later this week.

Brown adds, "Be patient, help is coming."
