Oncor update: Power outages keep coming

More than 245,000 outages are now keeping homes and businesses in the dark, Oncor spokeswoman Megan Wright says, because "the storms just will not stop, and lightning has been a huge problem." That number is a large increase from earlier this morning.

Wright says Oncor is working to restore power, but as soon as they make a repair in one area, an outage happens somewhere else. Last night, Oncor restored power to 150,000 homes and businesses, "but new ones keep coming up," Wright says.
