Almost all the power has been restored to East Texas residents after yesterday's storm.
A system ripped through the area yesterday morning with wind gusts reaching nearly 40 miles an hour. More than ten thousand people lost their power. The hardest hit areas were Tyler, Palestine, Lufkin and Nacogdoches.
Power is back on for Tyler and Palestine residents at this point. There are still about 300 people in the Lufkin and Nacogdoches area without power. That problem should be fixed by 10pm.
