Crews Repair Powerlines After Nicholas Downs Trees in Houston

The crew worked to restore power to thousands of customers in Houston, Texas on September 14, after a tropical cyclone, Nicholas, traveled across the region and damaged power lines. On Tuesday night, CenterPoint Energy said it was working all night to restore power to more than 350,000 customers and the crew to restore power to another 100,000 customers. The company warned that some customers may not be powered for up to five days. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) downgraded Tropical Cyclone Nicholas to Tropical Cyclone on Tuesday night. According to the NHC, Nicholas was expected to bring heavy rains and potentially “life-threatening” flash floods on the northern Texas coast, Louisiana, southern Mississippi, southern Alabama, and western Florida Panhandle on Thursday.
