According to Sue Mercer with ONCOR, crews from Metroplex are headed to the area to assist with power restoration.

As of 9 p.m., there were just over 9,900 customers without power across the ONCOR system, with 6,703 customers in Midland and 2,390 customers in Odessa.

Mercer tells us they are working as quickly as they can to restore power to their customers.
