Many residents in the Heights and surrounding areas saw their power go out overnight on Tuesday.

It especially caught the attention of Houston city council member Abbie Kamin, whose District C represents the Heights as well as parts of Greater Inwood, Central Northwest and Lazybrook/Timbergrove.

“The outage (I’ve been told) is due to equipment failure,” she Tweeted just after 10:30 p.m. “CenterPoint crews are out in the area for repairs. They do not believe this is an all-night situation.”

As of 10 a.m. Wednesday, CenterPoint Energy’s outage tracker indicated that power had been restored to all of its customers in the 77008 zip code (Greater Heights) as well as Garden Oaks/Oak Forest, Shepherd Park Plaza and Central Northwest neighborhoods in the 77018 zip code. Rice Military in the 77007 zip code and Northside/Northline in 77009 also had no outages as of Wednesday morning

There were still four total customers without power in Greater Inwood (77091) and Langwood (77092) as of 10 a.m. Wednesday.

IMO, losing power for awhile is not that newsworthy; transformers blow frequently.

What was the total number who lost power?
