As Texans continue to grapple with an unprecedented winter storm, many in the Greater Austin area are still left without essential resources including electricity and water.

As of 8:30 a.m. on Feb. 19, Austin Energy reported a significant decrease in citywide outages. Still, roughly 18,000 customers are still without electricity, in some cases caused by damaged power lines and circuits.

A majority of power outages remain ongoing in the Westlake region, according to Austin Energy’s outage map. In West Lake Hills, there are more than 12 outages impacting 192 customers, and in Rollingwood, there are 16 outages affecting 794 customers.

Road conditions remain icy and unsafe in many areas throughout the Lake Travis-Westlake region, and officials in Bee Cave, Lakeway, West Lake Hills and Rollingwood have urged residents to avoid driving.

However, in the case of an emergency, several businesses have opened their doors to the community—some with reduced operational hours or supplies.

Local leaders have also been working to provide the community with supplies such as bottled water, propane and hot meals.

The city of Lakeway has directed residents without propane to an online form. The questionnaire is available for Bee Cave and Lakeway residents that utilize a single-user propane tank.

While city governments have no control over propane deliveries, local officials will utilize this data to identify priority areas within the community and potentially clear roads as needed, according to the form.

Bee Cave Mayor Kara King also took to Facebook to distribute a running spreadsheet for residents in need titled "Neighbors Helping Neighbors." Within the document, Bee Cave community members are offering resources to those without heat or water.

These businesses were operating at the time this story was published. Opening hours may vary depending on unexpected power outages, staffing challenges and other issues caused by the inclement weather. This list is not comprehensive.
