A truck splashes through a flooded intersection of South W.S. Young Drive Monday June 9, 2014.

Heavy rain and winds left thousands of Killeen residents without power this morning.

Officials from Oncor said that roughly 3,000 Killeen residents are currnelty without power due to the weather. Many of the outages were reported along Highway 190, according to Oncor spokesman Carl Green.

Those outages have also affected many of the city's traffic signals. Killeen Police Department spokeswoman Carroll Smith said KPD has been receiving reports of weather-related power outages that are affecting traffic signals at multiple intersections throughout the city.

Smith warned drivers to be cautious, and said that non-working signals  should be treated as a four-way stop.

Smith said no intersections were shut down as of 9:45 a.m., but advised drivers to stay off the roads unless it was absolutely necessary.
