Storm leaves thousands without power in Texas


AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Freezing weather has reached parts of Texas as strong winds cut electricity to about 3,000 homes and businesses in Austin.


Most of the Austin Energy customers had power restored by late Monday morning.


Utility spokesman Ed Clark says about 2,300 customers lost electricity before dawn Monday when a power pole was damaged. The rest lost power when strong winds blew tree limbs into power lines.


Temperatures dipped into the teens in parts of the Panhandle. The National Weather Service says light snow associated with the cold front was reported in parts of North Texas, including Decatur, Denton and Fort Worth.


Some schools in the Lubbock area delayed the start of classes Monday due to weather.
