CITY TEXAS, Texas (KTRK) – Overnight, thousands of residents in Texas City were left in the dark, without electricity.

ORIGINAL REPORT: The Texas city lost power, leaving thousands of people in the dark, leading to chemical burning factories

Besides dealing with the cold weather, many people can’t help but worry about the flares that have turned orange.

Petrochemical facilities also experienced power outages that forced them to shut down their units, hence flares for safety. The good news is that the power is back now.

The City of Texas Emergency Management said it was unsure what caused the unplanned outage.

ABC13 has contacted ERCOT for more information. The company submitted the following report:

“We are aware of an outage related to the Texas-New Mexico Power (TNMP) transmission line. We are talking with TNMP and providing any assistance we can offer. The outage is out. This power does not affect the overall reliability of the grid.”

TNMP said they were looking into what caused their device to fail.

About 20,000 of their customers were without power in Texas City and La Marque.
