Power Returning to Parts of North Midland

MIDLAND - The power is starting to come back on in parts of north Midland after being off for several hours.

The area around north Midland Drive and Loop 250 was affected just before 2:00 Tuesday afternoon.

ONCOR officials tell NewsWest 9 that crews were able to rework the system and power has been restored.

ONCOR officials also say that a bad underground cable located behind the Northside Wal-Mart caused the power outage and is currently being replaced.
