DALLAS (AP) — Storms in North Texas have knocked out power to thousands of homes and businesses and damaged about a dozen small planes.
Dallas-based Oncor (ON'-kor) reports more than 18,000 customers still without electricity Monday afternoon as crews worked to restore power.
The National Weather Service says wind gusts of more than 70 mph were recorded Sunday night in the Fort Worth area. Authorities have no reports of major damage or injuries.
Some small planes outside a hangar at Fort Worth's Meacham (MEE'-chum) International Airport were damaged by wind-tossed debris.
The American Red Cross was sending bottled water to residents whose homes lost power or suffered damage, including parts of Haltom City, Kennedale and Eagle Mountain Lake. Forecasters predicted another hot day Monday, with temperatures above 100 degrees.
