A little over 10,000 Oncor customers were without electricity about 8 o’clock tonight as a thunderstorm moved through Smith County, Oncor spokesman Charles Hill said.

 

The power outages were mostly in the Lindale, Hideaway, northwest quadrant of Smith County, Hill said.

 

There were also outages in Tyler, he added.

 

“I suspect that 10,000 number will go up,” as the storm continues to move through the area, Hill said.

 

He could not say when power would be restored.
