Tens of thousands of Texans have had their power restored after an icy winter storm swept through much of the state this week, but more than 240,000 homes and businesses were still without electricity Friday morning. 

Travis County, where state capital Austin is located, remained the epicenter of the outages Friday morning, where nearly 120,000 customers were without power. Energy officials said it was unclear when power would be restored in Austin, the American-Statesman, part of the USA TODAY Network, reported Thursday night.

More than 36,000 outages were reported Friday morning in Williamson County, just north of Austin.

In Smith County, home of Tyler, about 15,000 customers were without power, and in Bell County, located between Austin and Waco, about 14,000 were in the dark, according to USA TODAY Network’s power outage database as of 6:30 a.m. CT.
