More than 10,000 customers are without power in the Oklahoma Panhandle after storms this weekend.

Tri-City Electric Cooperative reports the most impacted areas are in Texas, Cimarron and Morton Counties.

Crews have spent much of the weekend trying to restore power after wintry weather left more than a foot of snow in some areas.

Xcel Energy says most Texas customers should already have their power turned back on.

It is estimated nearly 70,000 people were affected across the area in Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma.
