Hail, Blackouts in Southwest Houston

A big ol' storm is moving through the area, bringing heavy rains, hail and electricity problems.

Hails is falling in Westbury, where the power is out for hundreds of customers, according to CenterPoint's outage tracker. About 76,000 Houston homes are without power as of 4 p.m.

Also affected are areas around the Beltway in southwest Houston. Katy has also reported hail. Power is out in some parts of the Heights, according to a Down House tweet.

The storm is reportedly moving pretty fast, so things should clear up with a good weekend on tap.

Until then, the afternoon commute, or picking up your kids at school, might be more interesting than usual.
