Storms that rolled through the area around 1 a.m. last night caused various power outages throughout Austin and surrounding areas. Austin Energy has a map of current outages here. Customers still experiencing loss of power should call 512-322-9100 to report it.  

Crews have been working to assess damage, some caused by fallen limbs, and some customers have had their power restored as of this morning.

In other areas, Austin Energy workers continue to assess damage and fix remaining outages. Overnight there were about 7,600 customers affected; that number was reduced by about half by 4:30 this morning, according to Austin Energy. The utility company says it has about 10 restoration crews and six tree trimming crews working until all power is restored to customers.
