CenterPoint Energy says it's making "significant progress" restoring power in the hard hit area of Sealy following Tuesday night’s severe storms.
The company had already restored power to more than 48,000 customers by Thursday afternoon -- and says it's on target to restore service to "all customers who are able to receive it by late this evening.
In addition to damaging CenterPoint Energy’s electric infrastructure and equipment, the storm may have damaged some customer-owned equipment.
"Customers should check their weatherhead – the point where power enters the home through a pipe," the company said. "If this equipment is damaged, customers will need to contact a qualified electrician to make sure it is repaired before the company is able to restore service to them."
CenterPoint Energy urges customers to always stay at least 10 feet away from downed power lines and report them at 713-207-2222.
