In Texas, nearly 78,000 customers are without power as of 9 p.m. Tuesday, while more than 29,400 customers are still under power outages in Louisiana, according to data from outage tracking site

Aside from power outages, the storm has also damaged several sites in the Deer Park area in Texas.

Mayor Jerry Mouton said some of the damage in Deer Park, located about 19 miles south of Houston, included fallen power lines and minor damage to some residences.

The storm that brought the damaging tornado to Texas is expected to affect its neighboring states such as Louisiana and Oklahoma through Wednesday, as per a Tuesday report by the National Weather Service's Weather Prediction Center (WPC).
