About 2,500 Rural Electric Cooperative Customers Still Without Power from Weekend Panhandle Snow Storm

Much of the snow that fell in the weekend blizzard in the Oklahoma Panhandle is gone, but the power outages remain.

However, Tri-County Electric Cooperative based in Hooker indicates progress in restoration of power has been quick. As of Thursday morning, the Cooperative reported 2,155 customers in Texas County still were without electrical power.

Cimarron County, the very most western county in the Panhandle still had 211 Tri-County customers without electricity. Forty-seven customers in Beaver County had yet to see electricity restored. There were 26 customers in Baca County, Colorado still affected by the outages. Another 33 customers in Morton County, Kansas were waiting for power to be restored.

Fifty-three customers had no power in Hansford County, Texas just to south of the Oklahoma state line. One customer was in Dallam County, Texas.
