Most electricity restored in Texas after ice storm

Posted: Updated:

DALLAS (AP) - Electricity has been restored to most North Texas homes and businesses as recovery continues from last week's ice storm.

Utility Oncor on Tuesday reported power restoration is essentially complete in the Dallas area. Crews continue working in the Paris area, about 100 miles northeast of Dallas, where scattered outages continue.

More than a quarter of a million Oncor customers lost power Friday at the height of the storm that dropped temperatures and also delayed air travel.

Fort Worth-based American Airlines and American Eagle on Tuesday canceled 260 flights systemwide due to weather. Most cancellations are in the Dallas area and northeast parts of the U.S. facing wintry conditions.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for the Eastern Seaboard, including Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Wilmington, Del.
