SOTH PADRE ISLAND – AEP Texas crews anticipate restoration of service to the majority of South Padre Island residents by the end of the day Monday.

Those repairs are expected to continue through Friday.
To complete the repairs safely, an outage has been scheduled from 3 p.m. until 4 p.m. for customers served by the Causeway Substation.
