Storms cause some damage & power outages

Storms swept through Central Texas causing some damage and power outages.

The strong winds and rain were coupled with lightning which is believed to have struck a tree in the area of Copperbend Boulevard near Nuckols Crossing. The tree damaged a homeowner's roof and window and also fell through the neighbor's roof.

No one was hurt.

About 1,100 people also lost power. Austin Energy has restored services to most of those customers.

The utility says that if you experience an outage you can text "outage" to 287846, visit its website and click "Report Outage" or call 512-322-9100.
