It has been a long day in Deep East Texas. We have been keeping track of Hurricane Beryl for what seems like weeks.

When Beryl finally came to Lufkin, it had been downgraded to a tropical storm. Many counties near Angelina had it much worse than we did.

From Jasper to Nacogdoches the winds from Beryl have brought down trees and with it many power lines. Thousands of people are without power all over the area.

Beryl-Related Power Outage Closes Down City Offices

On Monday, July 8th, 2024 at 3:40 PM the City of Lufkin closed their offices early due to widespread power outages, according to Jessica Pebsworth. They have closed their Beryl call center, but the city will continue to take reports of downed trees and power lines through their online reporting system. CLICK HERE 

They would also like to remind everyone that the reporting is only for people who live in the city limits of Lufkin. Residents in Angelina County outside the city limits should report those issues to your municipality.

If you have a power outage you are asked to report those to Oncor as usual. Do not call the Beryl call center or city non-emergency numbers.
