United Cooperative Services reported that there are still more than 5,500 Erath County residents without power from last night and crews are continuing to work to restore electricity as soon as possible.

Stephenville Police Chief Jason King said for those without power that need a warm place to go, the city has opened the Senior Citizens Center located at 164 E. College Street.

Chris Brooks with the Erath County Volunteer Fire Rescue said Wednesday they have received several calls about powerlines arcing due to iced trees pushing down on them. 

The National Weather Service out of Fort Worth has reported that rain will continue in the area through Saturday.
