ODESSA - More than 11,000 residents in Odessa were left in the dark on Tuesday morning.

The power went out around 7 a.m. and left several ECISD schools without electricity including Permian and Burnet.

The power came back on briefly about 30 minutes later then back off again around 10 a.m.

Students were moved to rooms with natural light so they could take the STAAR tests.

Power was finally restored at Permian around 11:30 p.m.

ONCOR officials tell NewsWest 9, the outage was due to equipment failure.
