Power Restored to Most Areas

Power has been restored to towns throughout Cimmaron and Texas County in the western Oklahoma panhandle.

However there are still thousands of homes in rural areas without electricity. 

The outages are primarily in an area of southeastern Cimmaron County and the western one-third of Texas County.

Heavy snow drifts on some county roads are limiting access to crews trying to restore power.

The tri-county electric cooperative is continuing to work with construction crews to turn electricity back on.
