Lastly, we have 60 electric customers currently without power, and we are continuing to work around the clock to restore power. We understand this can be frustrating for customers still without power and we are working as quickly as possible. The City of Weatherford Electric is responsible for power to the meter box only. If you are still without power after electric crews have restored power to the meter box, you will need to contact an electrician as the problem is within your residence or place of business. We ask that anyone who comes across a down power line, report it immediately and stay away from the area. If you have been displaced from your home and need assistance, please contact the American Red Cross at 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Thank you, Weatherford for your patience. During times like this, we come together and show why we are a strong community. For additional information, please visit: https://weatherfordtx.gov/1666/Emergency-Management.

Storm Update #2 - March 2 (8:14 p.m.)

Approximately 10,000 households and businesses are without power. This is over half of our electric customers. Due to the extent of the damage our main priority is getting power back to critical care units, such as nursing homes and medical facilities. We will continue to provide updates as quickly as possible, but we do not have an estimation on when power will be restored to residents and businesses without power. We understand the frustrations of being without power and we are working as quickly as possible.
