Corsicana — Bowie Elementary and Collins Middle School lost power around noon Friday, according to Susan Johnson, CISD spokeswoman.

“Administrators are at the campuses trying to address the situation,” she said. “We’re going to try to talk to someone at the power company to try to see if this is a temporary thing. Then, we’ll determine what the next step is.”

The power loss is concentrated in the northern section of Corsicana, said Pat Ann Wilson, spokeswoman for Oncor.

“We have a feeder outage affecting that part of town,” she said. “We’re looking for the cause right now.”
