Dozens of people sled down a hill at Mueller Lake Park in Austin on Monday, Feb. 15, 2021. After a heavy night of snow, the National Weather Service has received reports from around Central Texas of snowfall totals as high as half a foot.

Austin residents continue to report widespread power outages after Texas' power grid was faced with an all-time high record demand for power Sunday night. 

'Basically we're stuck here': 40% of Austin Energy homes without power amid failed 'rotating blackouts'

During a Monday presser, Austin Energy reported that some 40% of local customers were experiencing outages. The outages were initially intended to rotate and leave customers without power for only short periods of time. However, as the company said during Monday's presser, outages were sustained and targeted a fixed group of Austin properties. Properties that did not have their power affected were either considered or were nearby a "critical operation."
