CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Several outages are effecting people around the city,

Omar Moreno from AEP Texas told us they take all power outages seriously but wouldn't consider these to be major.

The most effected areas are in Banquete and Aransas Pass, with 465 and 500 outages respectively. The outages are weather related, most of them caused by trees coming into contact with the power lines, according to Frank Espinosa of AEP Texas.

Crews are currently working on repairs.

Espinosa reminds customers to stay away from downed power lines and report them to 866-233-8508 along with any other outages.
