After a transformer blew near Commerce Hardware, a section of Loop 178/Culver St. was closed due to a live power line across the road.

Power outages were still widespread as of late Tuesday afternoon, causing at least one school district - Wolfe City ISD - to close for the day and force area citizens to clean up the damage.
