One neighborhood in the Fifth Ward is without power because of light rail construction. Centerpoint has shut off electricity to homes and businesses on Paschall between Thomas and North Main. The outage started at 4:30am and will end at 6:30am. Crews are working on the new north line.

Centerpoint and METRO representatives went door to door in the neighborhood ahead of time, warning people about the outage.
