As of publication time, most neighbors have power during this freeze.
Oncor is reporting 12 customers in Lakewood and 18 customers in Lochwood.
The Lochwood households — which have lost power because of wildlife/vegetation, according to Oncor — are expected to have power restored by 4:30 p.m.
But the estimated time for Lakewood neighbors is 6 p.m. The reason for those outages is equipment failure.
The freezing temperatures and dangerous road conditions are a challenge for crews, but out-of-state utility providers are supporting restoration efforts, according to Oncor’s website.
In total, Oncor is reporting 500 active outages, with 19,416 customers affected. About 3.84 million customers are served.
