SUMMARY: Power Center Point is under criticism for handling outages after Hurricane Barrel struck Texas. Residents in the Garden Oaks neighborhood are suffering without electricity amidst soaring temperatures, causing increased heat emergencies. President Joe Biden declared a federal emergency in Texas. Center Point Energy has 12,000 workers restoring power, stressing the complexity of the process. Harris County Attorney Christian Meny criticized the company’s communication and disaster preparedness. Many residents are frustrated with the lack of information and prolonged outages. Center Point’s outage tracker has been down since May, but a new restoration tracker is now available on click2houston.com.

One thing Texans are going to do — put Whataburger to good use.
Hurricane Beryl left more than 2.2 million CenterPoint Energy customers across the Houston area without power on Monday.
