NEW DEAL, TX (KCBD) – At a time when temperatures ranged from 24 to 27 degrees and wind speeds ranged from 10 to 14 mph, New Deal residents lost power.  A spokesman for Xcel Energy says there was a line failure, the cause of which was unknown.  The spokesman said more than 200 homes or businesses lost power. 

Xcel Energy's computerized outage map showed 207 customers lost power at 9:47 AM.  Power was restored less than three hours later.

Many home furnaces rely upon a combination of natural gas and electric power in order to work.
