Approximately 2.8 million Texans remained without power Tuesday night (February 16) and into Wednesday morning (February 17) as more winter weather nears. ERCOT has struggled to restore electricity across the state and remained under a Level 3 Alert – which continued rolling power outages.
Without power, millions of Texas households experienced freezing temperatures. Dallas reached a low of 3 degrees at 5:53 a.m. yesterday, while Houston saw a low of 15 degrees yesterday at 6:53 a.m.
ERCOT officials stated Wednesday morning that they restored power to 600,000 households overnight. However, that still leaves 2.8 million homes in the dark.
