There is still no update on when power will be restored for millions of people in Texas.

Some State leaders who are struggling with power outages are demanding answers.

Rick Schoendorf, a resident in Grapevine said, "I've been mad, and now I kind of look at the technology and everything we have nowadays, come on guys, this has been too long."

"I just want some warmth, a shower, peace, and quiet, and maybe watch a little TV."

There are about 3 million people in the state still without power, including hundreds of thousands of outages reported in North Texas.

That is a significant drop from Tuesday when that number was close to 4.5 million across Texas.

According to ONCOR’s power outage map, at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, there were more than 450,000 outages reported in North Texas.

Some have experienced power coming back, then going away again, while others have been in the dark nonstop since Monday.

ERCOT, the state's electrical grid operator, said power generators began going offline Sunday, mainly natural gas and coal, along with nuclear and wind turbines.
