No Meals on Wheels delivery in Tarrant County today because of severed power line

Meals on Wheels Inc. of Tarrant County will not deliver meals Monday because of a power outage that was possibly caused by thieves in search of copper, an organization spokeswoman said.

A power line to the facility at 320 South Freeway was "severed," spokeswoman Denise Harris said.

Workers were trying to restore power but the facility will remain closed until the repairs are complete and evaluated by city inspectors, she said.

"Every effort is being made to resolve this unfortunate situation today," she said.

Clients should have at home "shelf stable meals" that were previously distributed in case inclement weather disrupts delivers.

This summer, thieves cut and removed copper pipes attached to an air conditioning unit at the non-profit.
