CPS Energy, the San Antonio-based utility company, reported that some power outages in the city were caused by light rain.
However, the majority of the outages were due to fires, with CPS Energy and firefighters responding to about 40 pole top fires in a single day.
The light rain, combined with pollen, can bond together dirt on power lines, creating a pathway for electricity.
This can cause the wood on the pole to catch on fire, resulting in power outages for the affected neighborhood.
CPS Energy said that repairs for these outages typically do not take too long, although one in a particular neighborhood took a couple of hours to fix.
The company is hoping for heavier rain to clear up debris and prevent further outages.
