Electricity Out Across Portions of Texarkana
Power is reported out across a portion of central Texarkana, Texas.
According to the SWEPCO Power Outage Map, around 5,000 customers are affected at this point. Texarkana police say the outages have been reported particularly from State Line westward to Richmond Road.
No word at this time on exactly what caused the outages but SWEPCO is currently working on restoration with the company saying power should be restored by no later than 1:30PM.
Texas side Public Information Officer Shawn Vaughn reminds motorists, "to treat traffic signals that aren't working as four way stops."
