CROSBYTON, TX (KCBD) -

Update 2 p.m.:

Power has been restored to most of the residents of Ralls and Crosbyton earlier than anticipated after a surprise storm Friday night took out power to many community residents.

Originally officials with Excel Energy were thinking power would not be restored to the area until about 4 p.m. Saturday. However, most residents were back with power in the early morning hours, according to an Excel news release. 

Officials have also assessed the damage and report that 22 power lines and 20 cross arms were destroyed. Twenty spans of lines were down in one area and 300 yards of wire were blown from Excel's right of way.

Power is also out in Ralls where straight-line winds have damaged structures and power infrastructure. Residents are being asked to conserve water as Xcel works to restore power.

The city says the power may be out overnight into the early morning hours as Xcel works to restore service.
