Crews restoring power, picking up brush, setting up food distribution points

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — CPS Energy crews continue working ’round the clock to restore power following another round of  storms.   Just as they got a handle on outages after Thursday’s powerful storms, the San Antonio area got hit again Sunday.

At one point Sunday night, there were about 22,000 power outages. As of 4:30 Monday morning, more than 800  area homes and businesses had no electricity.

Call CPS Energy at 210-335-HELP to report any power outages or downed power lines.

The city’s Transportation and Capital Improvements Department has crews fixing traffic lights affected by the storms.

Solid Waste Department crews are picking up brush and sweeping the streets. The Bitters Recycling Center and Nelson Gardens Brush Recycling Center will be open for disposal of storm-related tree debris at no charge.

San Antonio residents in areas affected by the storm who need special garbage collection for spoiled food can call 311. That’s the number to call for any questions about San Antonio city services.

A couple of food distribution centers have been set up for District 7 residents affected by Thursday’s storms. Take a SAWS or CPS Energy bill for proof of residency in District 7.

The St. Vincent de Paul Society will be distributing food from 9 to noon at St. Paul’s Catholic Church, and from 10 a.m. to 2 pm at St. Luke’s Catholic Church.
