SAN ANTONIO – CPS Energy crews worked all morning and into the afternoon Wednesday to restore power to homes on the North Side.
The utility said most outages were due to ice-covered tree limbs leaning on power lines or ice weighing down lines.
Lineman crews KSAT spoke with said outage repairs typically take one to three hours.
At least 2,000 people living in the Stone Oak area said they were without power into the afternoon.
One family said they left their home to find warmth.
“The inside feels pretty similar to being outside without the wind,” Trish Cantu said.
According to the CPS outage map at 5 p.m, the Stone Oak area is still impacted.
