Much of the Dallas-Fort Worth area is still without power as deadly low temperatures continue to plague Texas according to a For Worth Star-Telegram article from February 16th. In it they say:
“Hundreds of thousands of Dallas-Fort Worth residents were without power Tuesday morning as record low temperatures bore down on the region and more winter weather loomed on the horizon.
Road conditions were also dangerous in many spots across North Texas, with the frigid temperatures freezing over precipitation from the weekend, according to the National Weather Service in Fort Worth. Tarrant County issued a disaster declaration on Tuesday, stating there have been impassable roads, traffic accidents and power outages.”
There still isn’t a solid timetable as to when power will be fully restored according to a WFAA 8 article from February 15th. In it they say:
“Oncor is advising Texans they may also experience multiple outage rotations as the controlled outages transition to rotating outages once more power supply comes online.
“We recognize how unsettling these outages can be and strive to minimize impacts,” Oncor officials said. They are urging people to also take care of themselves and their neighbors and find warming shelters if they need one.
ERCOT has said there’s no limit to how long any one outage could last. It could be many hours, and it’s up to each provider to figure out where and how long the rotations are”
The outages are likely to continue sporadically for the duration of the destructively weather, and maybe even a little after.
