San Antonio Residents Face Power Outages as Storms Hit, CPS Energy Works to Restore ServiceSource: Google Street View

Electricity disruptions have become a notable issue for residents in San Antonio, Texas, as thunderstorms swept through the area, causing significant power outages. The Express-News reported that the storms have affected about 10,000 CPS Energy customers on Monday morning, based on information sourced from the CPS Energy Outage Map.

The storms began to quickly move into the San Antonio area by early morning, leading to 70 active outages and impacting more than 9,800 customers citywide. In addition, the number of affected customers in Texas totaled over 18,600, with particularly high outage percentages in Frio County and Medina County. Following the morning's severe weather, conditions were expected to improve, with a decrease in rain forecasted for the afternoon.

Despite the widespread impact earlier in the day, efforts to restore the power supply have been effectively ongoing. According to MySA, CPS Energy indicated that their crews were addressing over 32 weather-related issues that originally left 3,200 customers without electricity. The gusty winds recorded at up to 40 mph were at the root of these disruptions.

As of 1:00 p.m. on the same day, CPS Energy's efforts appeared to rapidly make an impact, reducing the number of customers without power to fewer than 800. With continued progress, the latest numbers reveal there are now less than 300 customers awaiting power restoration. Customers can actively monitor the status of the outages by visiting the CPS Energy outage map directly via the utility company's website.
