Wind Causes Longview Power Outage

Swirling, high winds caused thousands of homes in Longview to be without power for several hours. Yesterday, more 4,000 Longview SWEPCO customers lost electricity. High winds blew debris and tree limbs into lines, knocking circuits out around 1:30 p.m.

East Texas Regional Airport clocked the peak afternoon winds at more than 40 miles-per-hour in gusts. Another 60 customers in Mineola and Marshall were also without power for short periods.
