Storm leaves 170,000 without power in U.S. Gulf Coast

Almost 170,000 homes and businesses were without power early on Tuesday from Texas to Mississippi after severe storms battered the U.S. Gulf Coast states on Monday, according to local utilities.

The storms moved from west to east, hitting Texas first. Power companies in Texas said they expect to restore power to most customers later on Tuesday, but would not be able to restore service in flooded areas until after assessing the damage after the water recedes. The following lists outages by utility:

Power Company State Out Now
CenterPoint Texas 54,200
AEP Swepco Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas 43,100
Oncor Texas 23,600
Entergy Louisiana 20,900
Entergy Arkansas 15,800
Entergy Texas 6,000
Cleco Louisiana 2,600
OGE Oklahoma 2,500
Entergy Mississippi 1,100
