Tens of Thousands Without Power in North Texas

For the second straight week, severe weather strikes Dallas-Fort Worth

More than 37,000 customers are without power after severe thunderstorms moved across North Texas Sunday afternoon, according to Oncor.

Sunday marked just seven days after storms and high winds caused a crane to collapse, killing one and injuring several others in Dallas, and knocked out power for more than 300,000 Dallas County residents.

This time around, Tarrant County is experiencing the bulk of the outages.

Early indications suggest straight line winds were measured as high as 63 mph at Fort Worth's Meacham International Airport and contributed to more than 27,000 Tarrant County residents without power. The National Weather Service will investigate Monday to determine if the system brought any tornadoes to North Texas.

Below are power outage numbers by county in the Dallas-Fort Worth area as of 1 a.m. Monday

Collin: 315
Dallas: 4,817
Denton: 36
Tarrant: 20,039
