Dolly leaves 27,000 without power in South Texas

The number of customers affected by the storm will grow Wednesday as the storm -- which strengthened as it neared the coast -- moves slowly onto land and across a large swath of South Texas served by American Electric Power Co's Texas utility, said spokesman Larry Jones.

"It's likely going to be a long day," Jones said.

Dolly was upgraded to Category 2, with winds of 100 mph as it slowed Wednesday morning before making landfall, the National Hurricane Center said.
