AUSTIN (KXAN) — Widespread power outages throughout Central Texas likely got many off to a rough Friday morning start. Here are the power outage numbers as reflected on these agencies’ websites:
- Oncor in Williamson County: More than 1,200, down from more than 14,500 at 2:30 p.m.
- There were multiple power outages throughout the Round Rock Independent School District, but school officials say they are not changing the school-day routine and that buses are on schedule. School officials are making sure students are in rooms with windows. In the case of an incident where the rooms got too hot or the school-day circumstances weren’t suitable, they’d bus the students to another location. Sack lunches are also being brought in because the cafeteria cannot function.
Austin Energy had about 265 reported outages after the storms rolled through.
Pedernales Electric Co-op, affecting the Hill Country, Leander and Cedar Park, had more than 1,800 outages. Bluebonnet Electric Co-op in Bastrop County reported about 142 early Friday.
