Massive power outages across the area

Posted: Updated:

Nearly 10,000 Xcel customers in the Pampa, Borger and Perryton areas woke up without power Tuesday.

Xcel says high winds and ice are to blame for the massive outages. However, they told us by Tuesday evening, nearly 5,000 customers had power restored.

Crews from Amarillo, Lubbock and Roswell, were on scene helping to fix the situation. But, residents in the rural northeastern portion of the panhandle may be without power until Wednesday morning.

Wes Reeves from Xcel Energy, told us crews are doing their best to get power back on. He told us people with young children and the elderly should do their best to find a warm place to stay this evening if they are still without power because cold temperatures are predicted for Tuesday evening.

If you see downed power lines or are still experiencing power outages, you are encouraged to call the Xcel hotline at (800) 895 – 1999.
