HOUSTON — There are eight locations open across Houston that are allowing residents without power to charge their phones and electronic devices.

Sunnyside Multi-Service Center, 9314 Cullen Blvd.
Acres Homes Multi-Service Center, 6719 W. Montgomery Rd.
Southwest Multi-Service Center, 6400 High Star Dr.
West End Multi-Service Center, 170 Heights Blvd.
Freed Community Center, 6818 Shadyvilla Ln.

Marian Park Community Center, 11101 S. Gessner Rd.
Tuffly Community Center, 3200 Russell St.
Nicholas caused extended power outages as it moved across Southeast Texas with strong, gusty winds early Tuesday morning.

The storm was a hurricane at landfall but downgraded back to a tropical storm as it made its way through Houston.

Nicholas packed enough punch to uproot trees and cause widespread power outages across the Houston area.

As of 12:13 p.m. Tuesday, CenterPoint reported more than 310,000 customers without power. A huge number, but a big decrease from Tuesday morning when the energy company reported more than 395,000 without power.

It’s unclear when power will be restored to all of the homes. In a 9 a.m. interview on KHOU 11, a company spokesman said it could be a multi-day event to get power 100% restored, especially to its customers in Brazoria County, which was the hardest hit.

CenterPoint crews are on the streets assessing the damage now that the sun is up.
