Hail, Blackouts in
Hails is falling in Westbury, where the power is out for hundreds of customers, according to CenterPoint's outage tracker. About 76,000 Houston homes are without power as of 4 p.m.
Also affected are areas around the Beltway in southwest Houston. Katy has also reported hail. Power is out in some parts of the Heights, according to a Down House tweet.
The storm is reportedly moving pretty fast, so things should clear up with a good weekend on tap.
Until then, the afternoon commute, or picking up your kids at school, might be more interesting than usual.
