Thousands still no electricity in Texas

DALLAS (AP) - Most of the record snowfall in north Texas has melted but thousands of people still lack electricity days after a winter storm struck.

Oncor (AHN'-kor) Electric Delivery early Monday reported about 15,000 homes and businesses without power. More than 200,000 Oncor customers lost electricity at the height of the storm.

The Dallas-based utility says all electricity was expected to be restored by late Monday.

The Dallas area was hit with 12.5 inches of snow in a 24-hour reporting period that ended Friday morning. Hundreds of flights were canceled at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport due to snowy conditions.

The National Weather Service says the forecast Monday for the Dallas area was sunny with highs in the mid 40s.
