Oncor officials work to restore power to 40,000 amid icy roads

Posted: Updated:
Dallas/Fort Worth -

About 40,000 customers are still without power in North Texas. Oncor says 30,000 new outages occurred Saturday because of tree limbs falling on power lines.

Oncor has more than 4,000 people working to restore power across the Metroplex.

Some of those people haven't had power since Friday morning.

Crews were out in full force Saturday, some coming all the way from Florida, to helo.

Oncor has also been using a helicopter to locate downed power lines, since the ice is making travel tricky.

"We've got very treacherous conditions," Says Oncor spokesman Kris Spears. "It's obviously very icy it has not gone above freezing and so that ice isn't going anywhere. So that makes travel pretty tricky for us."
