This might have caused a power outage if you live on the Northeast Side. On Tuesday, July 12, in the late afternoon, a canopy that had blown across electrical cables caused a blackout for CPS Energy in San Antonio.

The outage near Judson High School was announced on the social media channels of the city-owned utility business. Residents were informed by CPS Energy that the outage wasn’t rolling and that the canopy was to blame.

The electricity was restored around 4:30 p.m., according a tweet it made. CPS Energy cautions the public to secure any items that powerful winds may blow away.

Energy firms in Texas came under fire earlier this week on July 11 after ERCOT advised Texans to voluntarily conserve power. In spite of San Antonio’s 108 degree weather, CPS Energy informed its customers that it had adequate energy to meet demand.

Until Wednesday, July 13, the National Weather Service will issue a heat advisory. A heat index of 109 will accompany high temperatures that will reach 104. Customers of CPS Energy were advised to drink plenty of water and keep cool during the heat wave.

Additionally, the city operates 55 cooling centers across San Antonio until 6 p.m. The website for the office of emergency management has a listing for the closest cooling center for residents. Pets are permitted.
