It's day four for Burleson County residents living without electricity, and even though some are frustrated, others are making the best out of the situation.

News Three caught up with Burleson County Judge Mike Sutherland Tuesday to get the answers to your questions.

"We've been informed that within the next 48 hours we should have electricity back up and we've gone around telling residents to cut their breakers. If you haven't cut your breaker, do, so that when power is restored we don't tax the system and cause a surge and cause it break down," Sutherland said. "In the meantime, we've been distributing water and ice to Caldwell and Somerville residents over the last couple of days and Tuesday night we're going to begin the first community meals. At 6p.m. at Davidson Creek Park in Caldwell 3,000 hot meals will be served and at 6p.m. in Somerville 1,000 hot meals will be served at the First Baptist Church in Somerville. We'll also do that Wednesday at the same locations at 12p.m. and at 6p.m."

Caldwell and Somerville schools will be closed until further notice.
