SOUTH PADRE ISLAND – Outages continuing on South Padre Island nearly 24 hours after storms knocked out power.

The damage so bad the governor declared Cameron County a disaster.

More than 30 transmission poles were toppled in the storm. Utility crews spent Monday rerouting power to some homes and businesses.

Before the storm hit, there was already a three-phase project set to replace the transmission poles, switching out the wooden poles with metal ones.

It’s just going to take a few years to get it done.
