Power outages are growing in the Houston area as Hurricane Nicholas moves inland. CenterPoint Energy reports more than 162-thousand customers have lost electricity.

A-E-P Texas said Nicholas knocked out power to about 12-thousand Bay City residents last night before the storm even made landfall with maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour. Houston officials are urging people to stay in their homes as Nicholas moves through the area.
