CRANE - Sunday night's storms and high winds are getting the blame for knocking the power out for about a thousand people living in Crane.

The winds knocked over a power pole near the hospital.

And that left the hospital, the nursing home, and a school in the dark.

ONCOR got a contractor on the scene pretty quickly, and had the lights back on for about 90 percent of their customers.

The rest got their power back at four Monday morning.
