Saturday night storms costly for Austin Energy

Sunday morning's early thunderstorms proved to be especially costly for Austin Energy - to the tune of $33,000.

Around 3,000 homes were left without power at the peak of the storms. To get those homes back online, crews had to replace 11 transformers - a number that Austin Energy spokesman Ed Clark considered "unprecedented".

Crews had restored power to all but 200 customers by noon; all customers were back online by 8pm Sunday night.

With more storms possibly on the way Monday night, remember to call Austin Energy at 322-9100 if you experience an outage. As more customers call in outage details, Austin Energy systems can determine the scope and pinpoint the cause of outages.
