SLATON, TX (KCBD) - Thousands of people were without power for 20 minutes on Tuesday afternoon because of a transmission problem, Xcel Energy said.  Spokesperson Wes Reeves says 2,888 meters in Slaton and Southland lost power at 3:42 PM.  At 4:02 PM power was restored.  The exact cause of the outage was still unknown, Reeves said. 

Many furnaces generate heat from natural gas but still need electricity for the blower motors to circulate the warm air.  Effectively, no electricity means no heat.
