The power company at fault is now reporting 100,000 with out power.
They have said a fault in the lines caused a power plant in the Conroe area to go off line, and that has also caused them to loose the ability to import power from another plant.

Thanks for the link.

This morning the power company is reporting 150,000 were with out power.
Also reporting it was caused by high winds takeing out 16 power lines, wich also led to a fire in a turbin and a power plant shuting down.

I try to cite specific sources for my posts, but in this case it would defeat the purpose. I live between Houston and Dallas so my family and I have first hand knowledge of what we went through. However, the very few reliable news sources I have read, have not only reported incorrect information, but the stories have changed several times and does not explain all of the occurrences. As a matter of fact, there seems to be a complete disinterest of this huge event in the local media.

Without causing any bias by telling you my side of things, I would like to get any information possible from ATS members. This could be from either personal experience (as I know there are many Texans here) or from a cited source. I would just like to find out the real reason for the blackout and why the lies or misinformation. I still don't know if we are in any danger. Thank you in advance for helping me with this.

Cameo,
Well as you said you are the one who has first hand knolege, but hear is what I hear as it was unfolding;
I hear all of this on the TV News, mostly Fox. They reported that aprox 1,000,000 people in 7 counties were with out power, they then incresed it to 8 counties. After several hours they said the cause was a certen power plant, as I recall some where in the Conroe area. There was evenchely a store on the Houstoh Chronical site that said about 70,000 with out power. But the next morning the TV news was saying 100,000 were with out power. The Rep from the power company evenchely said that 16 transmishen lines went down, which as a result of that, there was a transformer fire at there generation plant. The combonition of the two or something there of caused them not to be able to import power from another plant. They said the cause was high winds.
As I am sure you know there were isolated but strong storms in the area that day. I do not know how correct all this info is. I tried to post it hear as I head about it on the news.
And like you said, the story seemed to change an awfull lot, and from what I saw, no one ever really showed what happened.
For what ever it is worth, thats about what I got.
