West El Paso outage left 4,100 without power for about an hour during storm


EL PASO, Texas -- A power outage late Monday night amidst the arrival of a major, early winter storm with the coldest temperatures of the season left around 4,100 El Paso Electric customers without service for about an hour.

The outage occurred about 11:20 p.m. and was concentrated in west El Paso. Power was restored about 12:20 a.m. Tuesday.

A spokesman for the utility told ABC-7 that the storm, which brought with it windy conditions along with a wintry mix of precipitation, was responsible for "debris in our grid that caused the outage."

Trouble crews worked to restored power as quickly and safely as possible, the spokesman said.
