Some Power Will Be Restored By The Weekend

The number of TXU Electric power outages in the Lufkin area is now down to 7,000.

TXU workers hope to have all electricity inside the city limits restored by late Saturday, but there will still be scattered outages in the country.

If you do have power, TXU representatives want you to turn your porch light on so they won't stop by your home unnecessarily.

In the past, TXU Electric customers were told not to call to report a power outage, but they're clearing their tickets and starting over. So if you do not have electricity, please call your local retail electric provider - if they don't call you first.
