(KCEN) -- It was a messy morning for Waco residents hit hard by rain and wind. 4,000 people lost power at the height of the storm and on Monday morning, half of them were still in the dark.

Oncor crews have been working overnight to restore power in McLennan County, but they had to fix big trouble spots before moving on to smaller downed lines.

City workers are also busy, cleaning up streets littered with branches and fallen trees. "It's always a busy day after a large rain like that," one worker said. "Residents call in and have us come check clogged inlets and limbs down and all that."

For the latest information on outages in your area, visit the Oncor Storm Center.
