As high winds and heavy rains swept through southeast Texas on Tuesday, at least 32,000 residents were left without power.

By midday Wednesday, that number had dropped to just over 14,600, with the majority located in Orange County.

Persistent power outages led Orange County school districts and Lamar State College Orange to cancel classes Wednesday. In addition, the Orange City Hall lobby was closed to the public and meetings of the Economic Development Corporation and City Council were postponed.

But some Orange shops are open.
