DALLAS (AP) — Electricity has been restored to most North Texas homes and businesses as recovery continues from last week's ice storm.

Utility Oncor (ON'-kor) on Tuesday reported power restoration is essentially complete in the Dallas area. Crews continue working in the Paris area, about 100 miles northeast of Dallas, where scattered outages continue.

More than a quarter of a million Oncor customers lost power Friday at the height of the storm that dropped temperatures and also delayed air travel.

Fort Worth-based American Airlines and American Eagle on Tuesday canceled 260 flights systemwide. Most cancellations are in the Dallas area and northeast parts of the U.S. now facing wintry conditions.

A spokeswoman says Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, which overall had about 90 flights canceled Tuesday, has returned to normal operations.
