Thunderstorm is to blame for power outages in NE Texas panhandle

Texas - A thunderstorm is to blame for power outages in the northeast Texas panhandle overnight.  

An Xcel energy spokesperson says eight poles on a transmission line were taken out by a storm around 11:00 Monday night.

The towns of Darrouzett, Liscomb, Follett, Higgins, Booker, and Huntoon were all affected by it.

Xcel crews are currently working on restoring the power and should be completed soon.
