Local News

Petrolia CISD closed on Tuesday following Monday night’s storms.

Those storms caused power outages in Petrolia, Dean and Byers.

Eric Paul, a spokesperson for Texas New Mexico Power said the storms knocked down a lot of poles within those towns and also brought down transmission poles in some hard-to-reach areas. It’s because of those poles they are estimating power won’t be restored until 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Paul said they were having to get vehicles that are better equipped to go to those hard-to-reach transmission poles locations.

No word on if school will be canceled for Wednesday.
