The foundation confirmed that affected people in the homes located at 3901 Edgar Park will receive assistance from the Red Cross to find housing.

In light of the severe weather and high winds, El Paso Electric reported multiple power outages throughout the border area Thursday evening, according to the company's website. El Paso Electric's outage map showed thousands of people without power.
