Texas chill eases, power restored to most areas

Posted: Updated:

DALLAS (AP) - Forecasters say Texas has seen the worst of a wintry blast with temperatures gradually warming and power being restored to areas that went dark.

Dallas-based Oncor (ON'-kor) on Tuesday reported less than 200 North Texas customers without electricity after nearly 5,000 outages Monday night. AEP Texas had about 225 customers, mainly in far South Texas, without power as crews work to restore operations.

The National Weather Service predicts a slow warming trend Tuesday, with temperatures climbing into the 40s and above statewide.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, which manages the power grid handling 85 percent of the state's power load, has appealed for conservation amid increased demand.
