A large area was affected by a power outage this morning. CenterPoint says more than 11,000 homes and businesses were in the dark earlier, but as of 11am, only 268 customers were without power. The areas affected included the Greenspoint area of north Houston, Tomball and Spring. CenterPoint says five circuits were lost around 6:30am. They are not sure what caused the outage.

Repair crews worked to re-route power to the customers who had lost it.
