UPDATE: Dickinson Residents Regain Power After Major Outage

Around 2,900 customers were without power when the problem happened


Texas-New Mexico Power said on Wednesday that the power had been restored in Dickinson, after a massive outage earlier in the day that left thousands of residents in the dark.



The outage occurred when a truck struck a utility pole around 1:30 am. The truck also struck a gas line, causing a fire. CenterPoint Energy said the gas line was cut off at 7:00 am and that they had rerouted natural gas.

Eric Paul, a spokesman for Texas-New Mexico Power, said originally 2,900 customers were without power when the poll was struck, but some had power restored around 3:00 am.
