Oncor pushing to get power on for everyone by Saturday

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Oncor has been working non-stop since Ike blew in and Saturday, they have a goal to reach.

David Collier, Oncor's Area Manager, said Saturday afternoon, less than 1,000 people in the Lufkin area were without power.  As of 8:00pm, less than 50 were still in the dark.

Collier says he's pushing all his crews to get that number down to zero by the end of Saturday.

For those who are still without power, call your electric retailer one more time so they can be sure not to miss anyone.
