Rain and ice continue to cause issues in Bexar County

People living in parts of the north side and Stone Oak are dealing with downed trees blocking driveways and causing other problems.

SAN ANTONIO — After three days of freezing weather conditions, rain and ice continue to be an issue Thursday morning in Bexar County, weighing down power lines and leaving significant damage. 

People living in parts of the north side and Stone Oak are dealing with downed trees blocking driveways and causing other problems.

A Winter Storm Warning for Bexar County was downgraded late Wednesday to a Winter Storm Advisory. The Hill Country remains under a winter storm warning as light ice accumulation is still possible.

About 4,500 customers remain without power in parts of the far north side and the Fair Oaks Ranch area. CPS Energy says a substation there is connected to another utility company's transmission line because of line damage. Right now, the ERCOT grid remains normal.

If a tree falls on your car or house, experts advise to take a photo of the damage. After you make temporary repairs, contact your insurance agent or company. Your homeowner's insurance policy should cover materials and labor used to make repairs.

Experts also advise to save your receipts and insurance companies may cover a tree loss. But, if your neighbor's tree falls in your yard, they won't be responsible unless your neighbor is at fault.

This is is a developing story and further details will be added as they are received. Check back to this article for updates.
