Thousands of Texans without power

Thousands of Texans are without power and many could remain in the dark for several days after intense storms.

According to the official report, thousands of Texans are without power after storms hit the state on Tuesday and over the holiday weekend.

So far, the tornadic storms have left people picking up the pieces of devastated homes and businesses amid uncomfortably hot weather.

According to PowerOutage.us, thousands of Texans are without power, in this regard, more than 450,000 Texas utility customers were without power Wednesday, including more than 200,000 in Dallas County alone.


Both Houston and Dallas were battered by hurricane-force winds Tuesday, as violent storms flooded roads, toppled trees and power grids and reduced some buildings to remnants of their former selves.

Winds collapsed a house under construction in Magnolia, Texas, killing a 16-year-old boy who was working inside, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

Thousands of Texans without power: Will the problems continue?

As of Saturday, at least eight people were killed in the state as severe weather swept through the region over Memorial Day weekend.

The violent storm is just the latest in a relentless series of strong storms that have battered Texas in recent weeks, leaving residents with little time to recover from one storm before the next one hits their doorsteps.

The summer heat will ease in Texas this week after a sweltering pre-storm heat wave that left thousands of Texans without power, but those left without electricity or a reliable way to cool off could still be at risk for dangerous heat stroke or heat exhaustion.

According to the National Weather Service, temperatures this Wednesday in East Texas will range between 80 and 90 degrees.
