TYLER, TX (KETK) - — An ONCOR spokeperson has confirmed that 114 of their East Texas customers are without power.
We cannot confirm right now which areas have been hit the heaviest.
As of right now, the power outages are minimal compared to Sunday, but ONCOR does believe that if the wind continues to make the area drier, we could see the number of power losses increase.
According to SWEPCO officials, there are 650 East Texas customers without power, most located in Longview and Gladewater.
Most of the power outages from Sunday have been taken care of, but the electric company is expecting more outage reports today due to increased wind drying up the area.
There is an additional 700 SWEPCO customers without power in Louisiana.
