Below is a map of the electrical outage for Centerpoint customers. Unfortunately the areas in red are all the places that DON'T have electricity. They are reportins as of September 16 that 1.43 million of their 2.26 million Houston area customers are without electricity. This includes the majority of the inner loop area, the Northern parts of Sugar Land, the Northern parts of Pearland, and a huge chunk of the Northeast side of town.
