LEE COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — Bluebonnet Electric said 260 customers lost power in an area north of Giddings in Lee County early Thursday morning after Wednesday’s cold front blew through the area.
By 6 a.m., Bluebonnet said power was restored to at least 255 customers. The rest of the members should expect to have power back by 6:30 a.m.
The fix the outage, Bluebonnet said crews routed power through undamaged lines. The company said a tree falling into a power line was to blame, and crews were removing the tree.
Bluebonnet also said the outage was caused by a storm-damaged lightning arrestor. Crews continued checking for additional equipment that was damaged during the storm.
