More than 100K in Houston area lose electricity

Storms in the Houston area have knocked out electricity to more than 100,000 CenterPoint Energy customers.

Utility spokeswoman Leticia Lowe says the outages happened as strong storms moved through the area early Sunday. Crews worked to restore power amid the outages mainly in southwest Houston and just north of the city.

Storms soaked parts of North Texas on Saturday night. About 4,400 customers of Dallas-based electric provider Oncor were without power Sunday after the bad weather.

The Texas-TCU football game Saturday night in Fort Worth was delayed more than three hours due to lightning and rain. The game ended early Sunday with the Longhorns beating TCU 30-7.
